About this winery

Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

Ripe and juicy, this deals a hand of cherry, kirsch, rose, mineral and spice notes. Though saturated with flavor and firmly structured, this delivers elegance and excellent length, driven by vibrant acidity. Shows terrific balance and complexity.

The 2017 Echézeaux En Orveau comes from a cool microclimate, the last before you reach Musigny, though here the vines face south rather than east on shallow soils. This has a pleasant bouquet, initially quite bashful but gaining intensity in the glass, with crushed stone infusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, offering sappy red berry fruit, orange peel and a touch of marmalade, and quite grippy toward the back palate. A touch of allspice features on the aftertaste. This should drink nicely over the next two decades. A well-crafted, burly Echézeaux.

A more floral-inflected nose reflects plenty of spice, herbal tea and sandalwood influences on the ripe aromas of plum and black cherry liqueur. The rich, intense and delineated medium-bodied flavors also display a taut muscularity as well as good power while delivering fine persistence on the youthfully austere, chiseled and linear finish. This is an Echézeaux of finesse and minerality.
