The Wine

ON THE 2019 VINTAGE : 

93 points Decanter "Assembled from over twenty lieux-dits, with a domaine-owned surface area of over nine hectares in the village-level Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. A proportion was fermented as whole cluster and the wine aged in cask, one quarter new. This is less forward than some, but lovely red and black berry fruit open up on the palate. There is significant density, but also a straight tannic line that carries the wine through to a lovely finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2039."

92 points James Suckling "This is just what you expect from a village-level Gevrey-Chambertin. Generous and quite earthy with full, supple tannins, but also enough acidity to keep the supple, long finish on track. A blend of many different lots from 12 hectares / almost 30 acres of vineyards! Drink now. "

92 points Wine Spectator "Lithe and delineated, this red features pure cherry, raspberry, iron and tobacco flavors. Tightly wound now, but shows excellent balance and length overall. Best from 2024 through 2040."

*Outstanding Top value" 89-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound "Notes of forest floor and underbrush add breadth to the aromas of red currant, violet and a whiff of oak. The sleek and relatively refined medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, punchy and balanced finish. This excellent effort is presently slightly strict and will need a few years to unwind and better flesh out."

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!
