  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Bright yellow. Deep aromas of pineapple, exotic herbs, clove oil and smoky oak, complicated by a leesy element. Large-scaled, glyceral and broad; less precise today than the Bienvenue but that's due to this wine's major baby fat. Very ripe peach and apricot flavors are lifted by lemon oil and chewy saline minerality. Finishes very long, with a light dusting of tongue-coating tannins. This wine held up well for days in the recorked bottle. I would not be surprised to see it merit an even higher score with seven or eight years in the cellar.

  • 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."
