Description

An overtly spicy nose of cool and earthy aromas of red currant and elegant floral notes. There is good delineation to the supple and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess a taut muscularity on the lightly mineral-inflected finish. This harmonious effort delivers fine length in a package that should amply reward mid to longer-term cellaring. - BH89-92

Fresh and elegant, displaying cherry, currant, mineral and subtle spice flavors. Features a tight-grained texture and a long finish. Best from 2017 through 2027.  - WS90

Deep ruby red hue. The expressive nose opens up with black fruits, spice and subtle toasted notes. The attack is elegant and refined and the palate is characterised by floral notes and a touch of mocha. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Domaine Faiveley is one of the largest and most illustrious domaines in Burgundy, and has made its name with red wines made from the Pinot Noir grape.

It was founded in 1825 in the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges under Joseph Faiveley, a wine merchant who had a desire for travel. In the beginning of the 19th Century, trade had begun between Burgundy and northern Europe, predominantly along the rivers and canals connecting the two regions. Merchants from Burgundy would travel along these paths to exchange their wines for textiles. Joseph Faiveley was one of these merchants, introducing his Burgundian wine to the world. Today, the house is run by seventh-generation Erwan Faiveley, and the company has expanded its footprint in the Côte de Beaune, and has vineyards throughout the Côte de Nuits, as well as in the Côte Chalonnaise and Chablis.

Domaine Faiveley is best known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, but small amounts of Aligoté are also planted in the Côte Chalonnaise. Currently, Faiveley has 10 hectares (25 acres) of grand cru vineyards out of a total of 115ha (285 acres). Faiveley owns parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Bâtard-Montrachet, Volnay and Pommard to name a few, however these are very fragmented with no single site being more than 1ha. The company also buys grapes from other growers.

Traditional winemaking with a modern twist is key in the production of wines from Domaine Faiveley. Modern barrel presses as well as custom wooden vats are combined with long aging in deep 19th-Century cellars to produce deep and rich red wines that need age to show their best. - Information from Wine Searcher
