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...

The pick of the Faiveley reds for me in 2016, this is everything that a great Latricières should be: perfumed, elegant and just a little austere, with patrician bearing, taut acidity, lovely oak integration and sweet, spicy fruit flavours. The finish on this wine is incredible.

There is a fluidity here, along with pure black currant, black cherry and violet flavors and a balanced whole that makes this red feel very comfortable in its own skin. All that to say this is almost seamless and, given the long aftertaste, shows terrific potential. Features a long, mineral aftertaste.

This was purchased by Faiveley in the 1930s. It’s the first Grand Cru in Gevrey right after Clos de la Roche. One-year old Francois Freres. Bright, fine and quite mineral and expressive with some pretty red cherry and raspberry fruit. Has a brightness of body but also nice sweet fruit and a mineral dimension. Some saline character, too.

Here too the wood treatment is subtle yet just prominent enough to warrant pointing out on the cool, pure and notably more sauvage nose of both red and dark wild berry and earth scents. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension suffusing the much more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are not quite as rich but notably more precise on the chiseled and wonderfully refined finish. Textbook.
