Robert Parker - (89-91) Points

"A 35,000-bottle cuvée derived entirely from Faiveley's own holdings, the 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes unwinds in the glass with aromas of red berries, cherries, loamy soil and spices. Medium to full-bodied, textural and seamless, it's concentrated and vibrant, with ripe tannins and a long, expansive finish. This is a real success."

Antonio Galloni - (88-90) Points

"The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes offers raspberry and crushed strawberry scents on the nose, darker fruit emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied, quite smooth and silky, well judged acidity with fine poise on the finish. This is showing very well and will require just 2-3 years in bottle."
