Darker gold, darker than the other btl of this last year. Nice aged burg nose with notes of spiced apricot, ginger, soil, orange peel and a little honey. Acidity is light but present. Nice finish. Past it's peak a bit but still enjoyable. Drink up.

From a good looking bottle with a high fill. Light to medium gold, nice weight. Notes of citrus, white flowers, apricot and a hint of ginger. Light at first in the mouth. Seems young still. Needs lots of air to show its power. My first taste of a CC by Faiveley. Very nice.

A powerful rendition of CC for sure, up front to the back the tension and power are very apparent. The wine has 3 distinct phases on the palate: the attack starts with fruit that is starting to fade into maturity, the middle is where the oak takes over, while the finish is the best part thrusting the energy of the wine deep into a long finish. If anything the oak is too aggressive while the slight oxidation tells me it's starting to descend from a peak.

Coolest bottle number ever! And the content; well wow!!! Burying with golden citrus fruits and the underlying spine of crushed chalk is to die for. While rich and wrapped in luxurious oak, it's also airy and long, almost savoury but still elegant. Impressive!

Showing now albeit without as much vitality or exuberance as expected despite no obvious signs of premature oxidation. As others have commented regarding 2008 Cote de Beaune Blanc, possibly a flatter, shorter lived vintage than initially anticipated.
