This is my first experience with Faiveley Clos des Issarts (frankly, my first experience with Clos des Issarts in general) and I was very impressed- I'd like to see it in a great vintage. This is a bit more elegant with more spice and earth than upfront fruit. I got notes of clove, cumin, sweet curry, white, red and black pepper and a touch of heat on the finish as well.
