The Wine

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. *Outstanding Top value" 89-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound

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!
