  • About this winery

    Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it.

    Sourced from a 0.83-hectare site that tends to be best in cooler, wetter years, this aromatic Grand Cru red is fine and well balanced, caressing rather than bludgeoning the palate. Savoury, spicy and sweetly fruity, this is all raspberry and wild strawberry with underlying minerality. 2017-27

    (from en Orveaux next to the Combe d'Orveaux but situated on a steep, south-facing slope with thin white topsoil): Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfumed aromas of rose petal, minerals and espresso. Boasts superb definition and energy in the mouth, accentuated by a high level of CO2. Youthfully backward and very long, showing no edges. This is always the Faiveley grand cru picked with the lowest potential alcohol, noted technical manager Jerôme Flous. Quite uncompromising in the early going.

    (from En Orveaux). A spicy yet reserved nose grudgingly displays notes of both red and blue pinot fruit that is trimmed in hints of violets and sandalwood. There is good richness to the detailed, intense and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess good volume and focused power on the ever-so-slightly austere finish that is balanced and refreshing. This too is going to need a long stay in a cool cellar but should very much be worth the wait.
