Domaine Faiveley, Nuits-Saint-Georges
Our shipments from this superb source of great Burgundies date back 30 years, to the 1989 vintage. This remains very much a family business, going from strength to strength, run by Erwan Faiveley and his sister Eve. Their superb 125-hectare Domaine includes 13 different Grands Crus and 25 Premiers Crus.
Since the 2007 vintage, carefully thought-through changes have taken place, with work in vineyards and the 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 state-of-the-art, new hydraulic press, replaced fermentation vats, and also fine-tuned their barrel buying – all to great effect. Winemaker Jérôme Flous has now been here for more than a decade, having previously worked as technical consultant for many top Domaines. Since the 2013 vintage the wines have been gaining in richness, fruit density, complexity and smoothness, without sacrifice of aging potential. Jérôme has achieved marvellous results with these 2019s. The rarest and greatest often sell out fast, so please let us know your wishes as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.
This opening offer of Faiveley 2019s is valid until Tuesday 16th February 2021.
