Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose melds flowers, minerals, smoke, musky game and a primary berry element like crushed grapes. Superrich and silky, with an exhilarating tangy quality and the balance and length of a grand cru. Subtle smoky nuances on the very long finish, which features lush, thoroughly buffered tannins. This wine was fermented in wood vats with 20% whole clusters (as was the Echezeaux and Latricieres-Chambertin) and aged in 40% new oak (compared to 50% for most of the other premier crus here).

Tasting note: The most elegant of these Nuits 1ers with mild wood influence setting off the pure and refined blend of red berry, plum, violets and subtle anise and clove notes introducing serious and concentrated medium full-bodied flavors supported by dense but fine tannins on the hugely long and explosive finish. This is a terrific effort that knocks on the door of grand cru quality and it should age like one too. Tasted: Jan 01, 2008 Score: 91-93 Drink: 2016+ - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding

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."
