Domaine Faiveley is one of the biggest domaines (115ha) in Burgundy and, many would argue, one of the best. This illustrious company has been based in Nuits St Georges since the days of Pierre Faiveley who founded the business in 1825. His son Joseph gave his name to the family business, to be followed by the first François, Georges who was instrumental in founding the Chevaliers du Tastevin, Guy who developed the business in the Côte Chalonnaise, François who has recently retired and now his son Erwan, born in 1979. The change of generation, enhanced by the arrival of Bernard Hervet as Managing Director, is clear warning of the intention to dynamise the business. Already there has been a notable expansion of vineyards under Faiveley’s control. Many of Faiveley's top wines are hand bottled with no filtration. This in turn results in clean, opulent wines that often show Pinot Noir at its best. Their concentration and richness are rarely equalled.
What The Critics Say
93-95/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Bright dark red. Complex, high-toned aromas of crushed cherry, crushed stone and cardamom lifted by flowers. Superconcentrated and aromatic in the mouth, delivering a sappy density but no impression of weight to the cherry and spice flavors. Wonderful clarity and lift here, and very long and subtle on the suave finish."
91-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"There is noticeable wood that fights just a bit with the otherwise fresh and attractively layered high-toned red berry fruit aromas that enjoy added breadth in the form of pungent earth, spice and lovely floral hints. There is a relatively refined mouth feel thanks to the fine-grained tannins that shape the middle weight flavors, all wrapped in a delicious and solidly lingering finish. The wood resurfaces on the finale but the concentration is such that this should have no difficulty absorbing it in time."
