The aromatic profile here is similar to that of the Combe aux Moines as it's fresh, earthy and quite pure with very ripe red pinot fruit notes complementing lively, dense and wonderfully complex, firmly but finely structured flavors blessed with buckets of dry extract on the long, chewy but balanced finish. This is a big wine but not robust or rustic and it carries its structure with grace and elegance. A stunner of a wine.

Medium red. High-toned, expressive aromas of red fruits, flowers, spices, earth, meat and nutty oak. Silky, spicy and pungent, with lively flavors of strawberry, cranberry and rhubarb. Very suave and light on its feet. Finishes with dusty, broad, firm-edged tannins and excellent length. Faiveley was an early picker in 2003, as he is most years, and this wine would be difficult to identify as coming from a hot year.

About This Producer


Domaine Faively began in 1825 as a classic negociant firm and has since been passed down from father to son for nearly 200 years. During this time, it has become the largest owner of classified vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beanue and Cotes Chalonnaise. With 10 hectares of Grand Crus and 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several monopoles, Faiveley is not only one of the largest producers in Burgundy, but also one of the finest estates in the world.

Today led by Erwan Faiveley, the Nuits-Saint-Georges-based operation is looking to expand the domaine's holdings of exceptional vineyards to ensure more control from vine to bottle across the entire portfolio. Faiveley's top wines are hand-bottled with no filtration, resulting in wines described by Clive Coates as "...supremely clean and elegant: definitive examples of Pinot Noir... above all they have richness and breed, the thumbprint of a master winemaker."
