Description

Charming nose of violets and sweet morello cherries. A touch of sous bois and wild strawberries on the slightly more serious palate offers a clue of things to come. Nice fresh mineral backbone and delicate spice compliments the firm yet sweet tannins on the long finish. There is a lot more to come from this wine. Drink from 2030+

Producer Information: Domaine Faiveley

François Faiveley represents the sixth generation to manage the family house of faiveley, which was founded in 1825 in Nuits St Georges and remains independent. The house enjoys one of the largest vineyard holdings in burgundy and so has the ultimate control over quality.

Only organic fertilisers are used and yields are contained by hard winter pruning and by “green pruning” (plucking whole bunches at fruit set). Grapes are hand sorted and destalked before pressing. Maturation is often in oak and as much as two thirds of new barrels may be used for the grand cru reds. Reds are fined with egg white and undergo minimal filtration.

Approaching two centuries of Faiveley expertise we see the fruits of that experience in their selection of domaine wines from vineyards owned and managed by the family. Perhaps more importantly the brilliant Jerome Flous has now overseen the entire process from vineyard to bottle for a decade now.
