  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($231) Medium red. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at smoked meat and botanical herbs; smells drier than the Latricieres. Then wild on the palate but less expressive, with some cherry and raspberry perfume emerging with aeration. Finishes with serious, chewy tannins and a saline suggestion of soil. Very closed today and in need of extended cellaring.

    A distinctly sauvage and somber dark berry fruit nose gives off notes of iron tinged warm earth, underbrush, crushed herbs and a hint of smoke followed by rich, full and moderately wooded full-bodied flavors that are notably powerful and supported by very firm tannins on the serious, long and backward finish. This too will require upward of two decades of cellar time so don't buy this if you're not prepared to be patient.

    Nervy nose. Satin texture - very polished. Bitter plums on the finish. Definite bitters but a racy wine with some real breeding. Very juicy.

  • 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."
