Good full red with a trace of amber. Very ripe Pinot aromas of redcurrant, spices, tobacco and cedar, plus hints of yellow fruits (peach, quince, pineapple). Plush, supple and fine-grained, with savory fruit, graphite and mineral flavors conveying noteworthy vinosity. Quite broad for the vintage, finishing with substantial dusty, building tannins supported by strong fruit. Another vintage that struck me as a bit claret-like. This wine does not show quite the quality of oak as recent vintages at Faiveley, and its tannins could be sweeter.
