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

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

See the wine detail page

(91-93) POINTS

Dark red-ruby. Tight aromas of black cherry, lavender, spices and licorice, plus a suggestion of bloody steak. A very pure, intense, fine-grained midweight with serious sappiness and minerality, not to mention strong acidity for Nuits-Saint-Georges. Finishes fresh and stony, with surprisingly suave tannins. An excellent showing, even if this wine will require more aging than the Chaignots.
