1988 Faiveley Clos de la Roche

A slightly funky aroma out of the gate, laced with cherry liqueur and a hint of forrest. More life than the ’88 Clos de Vougeot, which we tasted earlier; more fruit and livelier acidity give it more freshness. There is a traditional red fruit profile with medium tannins that are now super-fine and barely register. This wine is fine but uninspiring and getting tired. It is clearly nearing the end of its drinking window.
