Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Clos Des Issarts Premier Cu 2017
92-94 points, Vinous Media
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Issarts 1er Cru is a 0.5-hectare monopole adjacent to the Clos de Ruchottes from Rousseau. The most sensual of Faiveley’s Gevrey Premier Crus, it has a seductive bouquet of pure raspberry, cranberry and rose petal scents. The well balanced palate displays supple tannin, pretty red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of fig jam toward the detailed finish. This is a gorgeous 2017 that is going to be irresistible once in bottle.
