  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    This firm offers a strong line-up of grands crus from the Cote de Nuits. If you are looking for a rustic wine, with muscle and structure, Faiveley's Clos de Vougeot should be considered. The tightly knit Clos de Vougeot exhibits a deep ruby color, followed by a reticent but promising bouquet of jammy black-cherries and new oak that refused to dissipate even after 10-15 minutes of swirling. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, rich, and powerful, with gobs of fruit, glycerin, and tannin in the finish. I would not touch a bottle before the late nineties.

    A graceful wine, with earth and berry characteristics, masses of fine tannins and a truly gorgeous finish. Try in 1997. 500 cases made.

  • 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."
