These wines are offered on a pre-arrival basis only, with the wines expected to arrive early June 2021.
Stocks are limited and the wines will sell out, Domaine Faiveley have been on the rise for a number in year, we have seen the quality in the wines greatly improve over this time & firmly believe that this is a Domaine well worth your consideration.
Based in Nuits-St-Georges, the famous Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825 and in more recent times, the Domaine has greatly expanded its vineyards across the entire Côte d’Or. The grapes are entirely destemmed and fermented in a mix of new wooden vats for the top end wines and stainless steel for the lesser cuvées. Once notorious for being fairly austere, there has been less emphasis on extraction over the last ten years and the wines show increased freshness, purity of fruit and more judicious use of oak. A real contender for one of the most improved Domaine’s in Burgundy over the last decade.
Alan Meadows (Burghound) met with both Erwan Faiveley and technical director Jérôme Flous who stated on the 2019 vintage. In retrospect, we chose well because 2019 also gave us quite structured wines, so less was more in a sense. As to the wines, the reds are genuinely exceptional with excellent freshness and energy as well as lovely terroir transparency. They’re not necessarily greater than their 2018 counterparts but they are definitely more homogenous. Regarding the whites they continue to improve month by month and as they are already very good our expectations are high.
