    This firm offers a strong line-up of grands crus from the Cote de Nuits. Completely closed and backward, the Chambertin-Clos de Beze reluctantly offers up aromas of black-cherries, new oak, and earth. In the mouth, there is a suggestion of opulence and weight, but the wine is tight, tannic, and in need of at least 4-6 years of cellaring. It should age well for 15 or more years.

    Very appealing, with a sumptuous texture, tobacco, coffee and berry aromas and flavors and a smoky finish. An alluring wine that should be ready to drink around 1998. 500 cases made.
  • Rating: 92

    Funky, earthy, slightly stewed, roasted fruit nose and while the flavors are rich and full-bodied, there is a lack of nuance and freshness. This was clearly a substandard bottle. 86/now Note: I've had this several times, most recently in November of 1999 and the wine showed extremely well, scoring

    The Beze is wild with strong fruit, leather and a complete contrast to Fridays Charmes. This is clearly got the Faiveley signature, tastes young after 20 years, fruit forward with excellent balance.

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."
