  • 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.

    The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the 1.3 hectares acquired by Faiveley in the 1930s. It has a very refined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, undergrowth and just a touch of graphite. The masculine palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannin, good weight and structure and a persistent, vivid finish that is pure joy. Superb.

    (from a large 1.21 ha parcel). A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances. There is a bit better mid-palate density to the richer and much more mineral-driven and refined flavors that display excellent delineation on the linear, focused and mouth coating finish. This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly.
