  • 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. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

    We always knew that Faiveley had some of the best vineyard holdings in the Côte d’Or, but now they are finally making the most of them. This rose petal and wild strawberry-scented red is a stunner, with the freshness of a cool evening breeze. It’s an effortlessly elegant wine, with beautiful balance and poise.

    Good bright red. Noble, airy aromas of piquant pomegranate, smoky minerality, white pepper and leather. Densely packed and folded in on itself; like a black hole in the mouth. Great verve and energy to the saline and crushed stone flavors. Uncoils slowly with aeration, with the finish displaying almost painful intensity and terrific mounting floral length. A great soil-driven Latricieres in the making.

    This offers up a completely different aromatic profile than that of the Mazis with its extremely cool, restrained and ultra-elegant nose of a broad range of wild red berry fruits, stone, floral notes and spice hints. There is exceptionally good purity and transparency to the intensely mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that evidence ample power on the impeccably well-balanced and linear finish. This is a really lovely effort that embodies that ineffable quality of power without weight.

    Good full medium red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, crushed stone, white pepper, blood orange and flowers. Tight today and folded in on itself, with some excess CO2 currently suppressing the mid-palate fruit. Fairly tough tannins cut off the wine's finishing flavors, but the intensity and precision of this grand cru suggest that it will reward seven or eight years of cellaring.
