On the dense, rich, powerful side of ‘04, plenty of structure and wood framing a maturing of set of dark red fruit and dried, spiced florals.

Of all the wines tonight, this one had the most clearly identifiable character. An unmistakable nose of peppery cherries and dense, almost birch-like wood that always draws me to Gevrey-Chambertin. Here it's slightly lighter (not unpleasantly) than some of the denser GCs, packaged in a box with some underripe strawberries and wrapped in old-school broadsheet newspaper. A bit muted right away but very good after an hour in the glass. I do love Faiveleys from this era!

Another great bottle of this very promising wine. Great fruit, wonderful purity, a whiff of oak and fresh acidity, all balanced by a few autumn leaves and that defined Terroir-feeling.

Delicious, animal character, iron/bloodiness, still has some delicate notes

It has potential, but I would wait.

To my palate there's (almost) nothing more pleasing than aged Burgundy.
This was showing phenomenal at age 40.
