Domaine Joseph Faiveley, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru 2010

Faiveley Les 2010

Immature ruby.  Forged, penetratingly expressive nose, at once intricate and architectural.  A compressed, singular expression of Bathonian rock-bound raspberry and morello cherry …. so packed it feels carbonized.  Very pure fruit.  Very fine grip.  Sushi-knife cut and delineation.  Staggering persistence to make your knees buckle.  Potentially great Les Saint Georges.  Not the obdurate knot young Faiveleys can be but we suspect this will shut down in short order so best not to touch another until its tenth birthday.  From 2020+.
