Domaine Faiveley – Les Porêts-Saint-Georges 2016 – Nuit-Saint-Georges, 1er Cru

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers power, a fine concentration as well as a good finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of black cherry, wild fruits and small notes of wild raspberry associated with a touch of flowers, balsamic as well as discreet hints of spices, nutmeg, Sichuan pepper and a very discreet hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, elegant, precise and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful suavity, an acidulous frame, a beautiful finesse, an aerial side, minerality as well as a beautiful and slightly tight structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy/juicy cherry, blackberry and small notes of crunchy/juicy plum associated with touches of small wild fruits as well as discreet hints of lily, toasted, tonka bean and almond. Tannins are elegant. Good length.
