Domaine Faiveley Latricieres Chambertin Grand Cru 2016
Latricières-Chambertin at 6.8 hectares is a medium-sized Grand Cru in
Gevrey-Chambertin, which is often said to be powerful, opulent and elegant. It
combines the minerality of a Clos de la Roche with the depth of a Chambertin,
says Faiveley. The 2016 was a very good classic vintage with fresh red wines
that have a first-class balance between body and structure. They are expected to
have a long life. Faiveley's Latricieres was in barriques for 18 months, 60% of
which were new and 40% of which were in second use. It shows a rather
dark color, toasted notes, spices and ripe dark berries in the fragrance.
Very complex on the palate and with plenty of depth, the ripe tannins give the
wine structure and are always balanced by the extract.
