  • Vinous | Rating: 96

    Healthy dark red-ruby. Captivating exotic spices currently dominate the nose. Plush, saline, soil-driven wine, offering a rare balance of sheer layered ripeness and pronounced minerality. This big boy is more savory than sweet, and its substantial ripe tannins are totally buffered by mid-palate stuffing. Erwan Faiveley described this wine as his favorite of the vintage, while technical directlor Jerome Flous called it his "desert island wine." This cool site has clearly benefited from the extra density brought by the conditions of 2015.

    In spite of the very ripe plums and black cherries on the nose, this has a lot of smoky and flinty notes. Cool, firm and minerally on the palate, and a lot of drive at the finish. This has a couple of decades of aging potential if you can resist it now.

    A ripe yet airy and cool nose offers up aromas of essence of red and dark raspberry with plenty of floral influence along with subtle spice, earth and herbal tea nuances. There is terrific concentration to the rich and remarkably concentrated medium weight plus flavors that brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a saline, balanced and highly persistent finish that just doesn't stop. I often have a very small preference for the Mazis chez Faiveley but in 2015 the Latricières may very well better it.

  • 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."

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
