  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($146) Medium, bright red. Nose dominated by marzipan, herbs and spicy oak. Hints at sweet red fruits on entry, then turns dry, juicy and penetrating, with strongly oaky cherry and almond tones. I find a slightly raw, green quality in the middle palate and on the back end. Finishes with substantial and somewhat dry oak tannins. An awkward showing.

  • 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."
