LATRICIÈRES CHAMBERTIN

2017 Grand Cru Domaine Faiveley

EN PRIMEUR

An extraordinary wine, even for this very special Grand Cru. So mineral and pure with a gigantic concentration of sour cherries. The extremely fine and racy finish lifts off towards the heavens. You could drink it on release, but this has enormous aging potential. Try to wait until 2023. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 98-98 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com(Feb 2019)

An impressive start here with really good push and drive. A leaner cleaner core. The scrubbed, textured core of fruit is pushed firmly on by the lovely mineral energy here. Exciting ride and bounce. This is impressive. Very pure fruit is dark and yet glossy - but well wrapped up for now. More compact and more serious than the Charmes or Echezeaux at this stage. Impressive.

(from a large 1.21 ha parcel). A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances. There is a bit better mid-palate density to the richer and much more mineral-driven and refined flavors that display excellent delineation on the linear, focused and mouth coating finish. This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly. Drinking range: 2032 - Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the 1.3 hectares acquired by Faiveley in the 1930s. It has a very refined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, undergrowth and just a touch of graphite. The masculine palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannin, good weight and structure and a persistent, vivid finish that is pure joy. Superb.

Cask sample. Light to mid cherry red. There’s a stony mineral finesse to the aroma here, not just fruit. Beautifully dry and fine texture. Succulent, elegant, stony aftertaste. Drinking range: 2025 - 2037 Rating: 17+ Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2018)

Somewhat reductive maybe as meringues on the nose. It is a little out of sorts I think. The palate however is tight and focused and there is a slight edge to the tannins, but the finish is very long. It is not in place now...but there is a very interesting thread through the wine.Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2018)

From a cool, stony parcel that's influenced by the Combe Grisard, this is the pick of the Faiveley grands crus in 2017, making the best of its fresher terroir. Smoky, scented and alluring, it has well-handled wood, 40% new. It's a precise, elegant, chiselled red with sweet summer-pudding flavours and a chalky aftertaste.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ

OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
