    ($117) Pale yellow-straw with a green tinge. Sexy aromas of orange, lime, jasmine and ginger. Sappy, spicy and extremely intense, with a remarkably spherical, seamless texture for a wine with such clarity and cut. With its combination of generosity of texture, sucrosite, energy and focus, this is a splendid example of this great grand cru. The whiplash of a finish features chewy, palate-staining extract. (Wilson-Daniels, St. Helena, CA)

    A restrained nose of white flower and seashore nuances that are fresh and airy leads to intense, detailed and highly energetic flavors that possess good power and excellent depth on the dry and slightly austere finish. Lovely and there is no mistaking that this is Chablis.

  • 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."
