FAIVELEY FAIVELEY - Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru Les Damodes - 2016

FAIVELEY Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru Les Damodes 2016

See the wine detail page

(90-93) Points

An attractively layered and bright nose offers up notes of various dark berries,
plenty of earth, spice and a touch of the sauvage. There is first-rate punch to the sleekly muscular and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that are quite firm if somewhat less strict though there is evident youthful austerity. This is also constructed to reward mid to longer-term cellaring and it’s going to require at least 6 to 8 years first.

About Burghound.com

Burghound.com is the result of a nearly lifelong passion for the wines of Burgundy. For more than 30 years, I have been collecting the wines and visiting the region. Each year I spend nearly five months visiting, researching, tasting, exploring and evaluating. Burgundy is my obsession really. Expanding on my coverage of the coveted pinot noir grape, each issue provides continuous coverage of both Oregon and California pinot noir, with rotating coverage of Champagne and occasional special reports from other pinot producing regions.
