Domaine Faiveley Clos de la Marechale Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru 1986
This 1986 Clos de la Marechale from Domaine Faiveley is a real gem from the past. The wine boasts an evolved garnet color and a complex, earthy bouquet. The nose reveals layers of dried red fruits, forest floor, truffle, and leather, while still maintaining a surprising freshness. On the palate, this mature Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru is medium-bodied, showing silky tannins and a remarkable balance between the evolved fruit flavors and tertiary elements. The finish is long and elegant, with hints of dried herbs and spices. This wine is a testament to the aging potential of well-crafted Burgundy wines.
