Average critic rating : 91.5 points



As good as the two prior examples from Nuits are, it's no contest in terms of aromatic elegance and complexity as this is a gorgeously complete nose that complements to perfection the complexity and depth of the middle weight flavors that are blessed with what is easily the best underlying material to this point. If there is a nit it's that the mid-palate is not overly dense yet the balance is impeccable and all of the structural elements are in perfect harmony with the size, weight and concentration of the body. A wine of class and grace if perhaps a bit less powerful than what I'm used to seeing from Faiveley's Les St. Georges. Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

Faiveley is most often referred to as a negociant though should probably be viewed as a very large domaine that does a bit of negociant work on the side. Faiveley is one of the largest landowners in the Côte de Nuits, with 123 hectares, of which 12 are grand cru.

The style here has completely changed over the past decade. “Old-style” Faiveley wines, which are very-roughly defined as pre-2005, are classically austere, a little tough, and require a great deal of time in the cellar to show their best.

The “new” style is considerably more forward: the wines have plenty of sweet and seductive fruit, though with a satisfyingly firm structure underneath. “Textbook” is perhaps a bit too easy a description, but the style here will please both lovers of fruit and lovers of tradition. What is undeniable is that the domaine is currently firing on all cylinders.

Wines to look out for include the monopole of Clos des Cortons Faiveley, one of just two vineyards in Burgundy to include the name of the owner in its appellation, and the Chambertin Clos de Beze Les Ouvrees Rodin – a selection from their very best parcel of Clos de Beze that was traditionally reserved for the family’s cellar.

“This is classic, expert wine-making; currently second to none. Burgundy at its best.” Clive Coates MW
