Domaine Faiveley, Nuits-Saint-Georges
Our shipments from this superb source of great Burgundies date back over 30 years, to the 1989 vintage. This is very much a family business, with François Faiveley’s children, Erwan and Eve, now at the helm. Winemaker Jérôme Flous and his assistant Bastien Giraud are highly talented, and operate within a rebuilt, spacious, state-of-the-art winery in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The superb 125 hectare Domaine includes 13 different Grands Crus and 25 Premiers Crus.
Since the 2007 vintage, many carefully thought-through changes have taken place, with work in vineyards and wine-making becoming more closely integrated. They invested in gentler means of transporting grapes from sorting tables to vats, up-graded their temperature control systems, installed a new hydraulic press, and fine-tuned the barrel buying – all to great effect. Jérôme Flous has been here for more than a decade, having previously worked as technical consultant for many top Domaines. The wines have been gaining in richness, fruit density, complexity and smoothness, without sacrifice of ageing potential. The rarest and greatest often sell out fast, so please let us know your wishes as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.
