    Medium red. Highly nuanced scents and flavors of red raspberry, smoky minerality and flowers. Wonderfully broad and horizontal on the palate, with a tactile, plush mouthfeel not shown by the other Nuits-Saint-Georges premier crus here. Intriguing saline minerality carries through on the suave, very long finish. Utterly seamless. As at a few other top addresses in the village, this is a Les Saint-Georges of grand cru class.

  • 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."
