Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Mazis-Chambertin 2011 from Faiveley has an exquisite bouquet that is initially understated, but opens with little encouragement to offer brambly red fruit, wild strawberry and red cherries, light mineral notes in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual, lithe and ripe tannins, well-judged acidity and quite a dense, sour cherry finish that is very long in the mouth. This is sophisticated and intellectual ' a great Mazis-Chambertin.

Good medium red. Knockout perfume combines cherry, lavender, sandalwood, pepper and earth, plus a whiff of game. Silky on entry, then firm in the middle, with plenty of solid tannins to give support to the strawberry and floral flavors. Quite dry and classic, finishing with dusty tannins, a touch of smoky, spicy oak and lovely lingering perfume. Will ultimately merit an even higher score if time in bottle brings more texture.

About This Producer


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."

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
