Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, 2006, Domaine Faiveley

145,00

An intense dark ruby colour.  The nose has a complex bouquet of rose and violet floral aromas and fruity aromas, with a few discreet woody notes.  The attack is round on the palate and then the tannins show their strength. This wine is well structured and corpulent, with long-lasting aromas and a fine representative of this famous Grand Cru.

Will match well with Red Meats, Breast of Duck, Game, Soft Cheeses

Description

This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.

The monks of Cîteaux, on their arrival, decided to create this clos. The last acquisition dates back to 1336. It took them more than two centuries to make the clos as we know it.  The demarcation of the clos only comes from the 14th century and the surrounding wall was probably built in the 15th century.
