  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($180) Medium red with a palish rim. Reticent but pure aromas of strawberry and flowers, plus an exotic whiff of white fruits. Then silky, sweet and densely packed, but with superb energy and underlying minerality giving outstanding definition to the middle palate. A weightless yet utterly insinuating wine with a tightly coiled finish and outstanding subtle, rising length. Lay this beauty down for a decade.

    A very pretty and unusually high-toned nose of cranberry, raspberry, earth, underbrush and a slightly more modulated sauvage character leads to detailed, fresh, intense and well muscled yet relatively fine flavors blessed with ample amounts of dry extract on the strikingly long and palate staining finish. There is excellent underlying material and this should be capable of up to a decade of improvement and should hold for several more. In sum, this is a refined Corton in the context of the appellation.

    Barrel sample. Their vines are located just above Ladoix-Serrigny.Lively cherry red. Animated fresh quite lively wine though not a heavy weight. But not cynical for the price. Some effort here. The oak may be just slightly too dominant but there is freshness. Slightly fizzy.

  • 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."
