Dark mineral fruit nose, quite cool. Taut and fresh and quite tannic. Feral and powerful. Impressive more than likeable at this stage but the power is all here. Drinking range: 2032 - 2045L&S (Nov 2020)

(from a 1.29 ha parcel). A mildly toasty and mentholated nose offers up a wonderful array of spice elements on the notably floral red berry fruit and earth-inflected aromas. The sleek and satin-textured big-bodied flavors possess a highly sophisticated mouthfeel that exudes evident minerality on the youthfully austere and terrifically persistent finish. A brief summation would be cool and very classy. Drinking range: 2036 - Rating: 93-96 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)
Aromas of cassis, plums, orange oil, smoked meats, loamy soil and black truffle preface Faiveley's 2019 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru, a full-bodied, velvety and sumptuous wine that's elegantly textural and fleshy, with its broad-shouldered chassis of tannin cloaked in an ample core of succulent fruit. Long and complete, it's a terrific Clos de Bèze in the making. Rating: 94-96 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
Fine mid purple. Was slow out of its blocks at first apparently but now it has a very high-class perfume. Sensual, clearly ripe fruit, crushed raspberry, but with nuanced detail here, the texture is absolutely what is should be and there is a long fine balanced finish. Certainly very persistent. Good stuff. Tasted: November 2020 **** Rating: 95 - 98 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has a well-defined, very delineated bouquet of red and black fruit laced with graphite and light tobacco aromas, quite austere at first but opening up with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red berry fruit. The acidity here is well judged, and there is the same kind of salinity as the Latricières toward the tannic finish. This will require 5–6 years in bottle to shave its edges, but it will be worth it. Drinking range: 2025 - 2050 Rating: 94-96 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Dec 2020)
The Faiveley family are the largest vineyard owners in Burgundy, owning around 120ha, spread across the Côtes de Nuits, Beaune and Chalonnaise and encompassing everything from generic Bourgogne up to the grandest of Grand Crus. Their holdings supply the grapes for 5 out of every 6 bottles made by Faiveley, the balance being bought in from carefully selected contract growers.

For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

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.
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.
