The Wine

 “Here the wood regimen is no longer subtle though it stops short of masking the beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, dark currant and freshly turned earth. The highly energetic and delineated middle weight plus flavors exude noticeable minerality on the powerful and focused finish that displays outstanding depth and persistence. Moreover, the finish really fans out as it sits on the palate.” 91-94 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

 “Domaine Faiveley now possess fully four hectares in this appellation, and the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is excellent, unfurling in the glass with aromas of small wild berries, spices, bergamot and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and gourmand, with velvety tannins, a plush core of succulent fruit and a long, expansive finish. This was an impressive tasting with Eve and Erwan Faiveley and able winemaker Jérôme Flous. Likening the vintage to "a broader-shouldered 2007," a judgment with which I wholeheartedly concur, Flous presented a selection of some of the 2017 portfolio's high points. Supple, expressive and nicely integrated, the reds showed very well; and the two whites were simply superb. I also revisited a selection of 2016s at my office in the United States, wines that are more classically balanced and seemingly more consistent than Faiveley's 2015s. I'll be reporting more on the winemaking and vineyard changes that have ushered in a new era at this address—as well as publishing the results of a vertical of the emblematic Clos des Corton Faiveley—in the near future. In the meantime, all these offerings come warmly recommended.” 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 “The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers comes from Faiveley’s substantial four-hectare parcel. I find this has more gumption and detail than the Lavaux Saint-Jacques at the moment. The nose features layers of blackberry, raspberry and crushed stone aromas, and the sweet, candied palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. Blood orange and quince infuse the red fruit toward the finish. Excellent.” 91-93 points Vinous

About the Wine Maker

Based in Nuits-St-Georges, Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825 and has been under the guidance of Erwan Faiveley since 2005. A few years ago, quite a few… we had the privilege of hosting one of our most memorable Masterclasses lead by Domaine Faiveley, where we looked at the 2012 Vintage. Long ago the Domaine had a reputation for producing good but at times charmless wines that required much cellar time – sadly some of the older wines have never come round. The tasting was a revelation! The wines were breathtaking…a reflection of the Domaine’s new direction under the guidance and vision of the then younger Erwan Faiveley. The breathtaking wines were a culmination of new vineyard practices, inauguration of a new gravity feed winery and adoption of contemporary winemaking philosophies – all of which combined to captured the full potential and greatness of their terriors. The wines were much more open and pure - charming while still retaining depth and structure. Pleasure giving from the get go but also with ageing capacity given the now harmonious /balanced state of the wines. A contender for one of the most improved Domaines in Burgundy over the last decade!
