En Primeur | Domaine Faiveley 2019

The Faiveley family have a long history in Nuits St Georges dating back over 200 years, during which time they have been one of the most influential names in the Côte d'Or. Today, brother and sister duo, Erwan and Eve, have joined their father François in a hugely exciting revolution at Faiveley. No longer just a négociant house, the Faiveley family now own an extraordinary range of vineyards in Burgundy including an eye-watering 12 hectares of Grand Cru and 27 hectares of Premier Cru. The secret of their success is to treat each individual parcel with the same passion and detail as some of their smaller scale neighbours. Their quality is hitting even greater heights in the hands of winemaker Jérôme Flous, now working in their spectacular new cathedral-like winemaking facilities in the heart of Nuits St Georges.

Winemaker Jérôme Flous describes 2019 as another warm, sunny vintage. Before the heat set in for the summer, some well-timed April rain soaked the vineyards which Jérôme says has given the wines “a very nice texture and beautiful tannins”. Spring frosts affected yield, but when they came to pick on 9th September the grapes were perfectly ripe and aromatic. Harvest finished on 21st September and the smaller crop has resulted in exquisite concentration. Erwan Faiveley is pleased to see 2019 follow the ‘rule of 9’: much like 1989, 1999 and 2009, 2019 is, he says, another outstanding vintage.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    The 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru comes from Faiveley’s 1.27-hectare parcel. It has a floral nose with potpourri and light lavender aromas that partially occlude the fruit expression. The palate is lithe on the entry with modest depth and quite tertiary in style, and a keen thread of acidity lends freshness on the finish. A little austere in style, it opens with aeration to offer a very minerally finish. Here, it put the Echézeaux 2019 in its place. Drink 2025 - 2045

    A flagship vineyard on the higher Côte, Cazetiers has a reputation for producing very stylish wines with great Pinot purity.

    The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru does not quite possess the intensity and drive of the Lavaux Saint-Jacques, coming across rather static by comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with elegant dark berry fruit and a harmonious, briny finish that completes this Les Cazetiers with style. I suspect the nose just needs some time to awaken and get its act together. Drink 2024 - 2044

    Faiveley's 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is very promising indeed, mingling aromas of smoky berry fruit and plums with hints of rose hip, orange peel, musk and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's concentrated and vibrant, with velvety tannins, lively acids and a long, perfumed finish.

    A mixture of domaine and purchased grapes that are vinified together, Faiveley's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges wafts from the glass with notes of sweet berries, plums, espresso roast, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and gourmand, it's sumptuous and charming, with lively acids and a ripe, enveloping core of fruit.

    One of the village’s most northerly appellations, on the high slopes adjoining Vosne Romanée. It is however typically representative of Nuits. Smoky dark black fruit aromas. This is plump and full, with a touch of Vosne sophistication. An effortless wine which will give pleasure from an early age.

    The 2019 Nuits Saints-Georges Les Damodes 1er Cru has a soft, supple bouquet, the 100% destemming lending freshness and sensuality, and a little brine emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, touches of blood orange and orange peel lacing the dark berry and spicy notes toward the finish. Give this 3–5 years in bottle. Drink 2023 - 2035

    Spicy aromas of dark raspberry, cherry and earth give way to impressively voluminous yet sleek middle weight flavors that display lovely delineation on the austere finish. This possesses good if not stunning length as it eventually falls off due to the fact that the tannins become a bit angular. With that said, I suspect that the overall sense of harmony will improve as the tannins resolve. Drink 2031+

    Aromas of cassis, plums, orange rind and spicy new oak preface Faiveley's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes, a medium to full-bodied, deep and lively wine with a concentrated core of fruit, framed by powdery tannins. Concluding with a long, mineral finish, it's another fine bottling from this cool, high-altitude and northeast-exposed site.
