Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Faiveley have increased their volume of fruit from this famed premier cru vineyard, by sourcing from a well-positioned neighbour. Consequently, it can no longer be classified as a Domaine wine, but the quality speaks for itself. There is a bright clarity to the wine, with aromas of tayberry and fresh summer fruits. It has the forceful structure that one expects from Les St Georges. A pronounced and confident style.

    Score: 91-93

    Once again, reduction dominates the fruit at present. The surprisingly supple mid-palate of the caressing medium-bodied flavors contrasts with the mineral-inflected, firm and very serious finish where a touch of warmth emerges. This is unapologetically built to age yet the suppleness of the mid-palate should allow it to be enjoyed a bit earlier than usual. Good stuff provided you're prepared to cellar it for at least a few years first. Drink 2033+. Outstanding

They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy's finest and most trusted, with an unparalleledselection from the Côte de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise. Domaine Faiveley owns some of the best slopes of the region with some located in Mercurey and Corton Grand Cru and Premier Cru. Following principles of strict quality control, the family produce great wines across thirty appellations in an elegant, graceful and well-structured style.

Region

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
