    Bright, deep red. Pretty aromas of red fruits and flowers, with a complicating meaty nuance. Tightly wound and pure; less fleshy and much more closed than the Combe aux Moines, but perfumed and lively. This will depend more on its chewy, ripe tannins than on its fairly low acids for longevity in bottle.

    There is no question in my mind that Cazetiers is simply a more gifted terroir than its immediate neighbor Combe aux Moines and these two examples corroborate that view. This is a simply brilliant marriage of earthy fruit with all of the elements of the classic Gevrey flavor profile, which is to say the raw damp earth, leather, somewhat animale character together with fine depth of extract and outstanding complexity. There is a harmony of elements here that is rare and the length is stunning. This rivals the Les St. Georges as the finest wine to this point.

  • 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."
