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...

Notes about product

Burgundy's vineyards date back to the Gallo-Roman era, but were abandoned for many years. Thanks to the monks from the Abbey of Cîteaux, well-known for the quality of their vineyard work and their knowledge of terroir, these vineyards were developed from the XIth century.

Winemaking notes

Domaine Faiveley vinifies its Bourgogne Pinot Noir from grapes grown in the domaines' vineyards as well as selected grapes and musts from its partner winemakers. A quality control is made on each reserved plotso that the quality of the grapes and the professionalism of the winergrowing partners can be checked. The wine is partly aged in vats and partly in French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months in our cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Tasting notes

Beautiful ruby red hue with aromas of fresh red fruit. Rich and ripe flavours mingle with silky tannins giving a well-balanced and pleasant wine with a lot of finesse.

Gismondi on Wine

Anthony Gismondi, April 2020

Founded in 1825, the Faiveley family established themselves among the most prestigious vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of selected plots, seldom bigger than a single hectare. It is an upscale introductory that celebrates all the annual La Paulée fetes held across Burgundy to mark the end of the grape harvest. Expect an entirely correct red fruited pinot that comes with a touch of weight and power you might not be expecting. Excellent acidity and a spicy back end make it a perfect mid-week dinner red for salmon, or pork. A top-level Bourgogne for sure.
