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
89-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A slightly fresher nose is composed by notes of matchstick and lemongrass. There is a notably more refined mouth feel to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that also possess slightly better vibrancy on the delicious, complex and nicely persistent finish. This too should be approachable young." Drink 2019+
17/20 Jancis Robinson (2014 vintage)
"Sample (not yet bottled) is slightly cloudy. Lovely pear aroma as well as grapefruit, clementine notes, the oak subtle on the nose and a little more evident on the palate in the creamy texture and depth of flavour. Oatmeal comes through on the fresh finish. (JH)"
