Santenay 1er Cru Clos Faubard 2012

Burgundy France
Retail Price: $65.00
Tasting Notes: This vineyard grows above Clos des Mouches where the slope climbs up to scrubland. The soil here is a marl limestone known as Bajocian marl found in the Côte des Nuits (and not elsewhere in the Côte de Beaune). Faubard’s wine is marked by intense spice and grip. The domaine, one of three owners of this vineyard, has 1.47 hectares (3.63 acres) here and makes roughly 750 cases each year.
