(from a .53 ha parcel in Ladoix) Discreet if not invisible wood sets off the ripe white flower and green fruit nose nuanced by hints of anise, clove and wet stone where the latter element is also reflected on the intensely soil-driven flavors brimming with both salinity and minerality on the explosive and strikingly long finish. This is a classic Corton-Charlemagne and absolutely worth considering, plus this wine has formidable cellar potential.

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."
