Domaine Faiveley Nuits St Georges 2018

75cl / 12.5%

“Mingling aromas of wild berry fruits and orange rind with nuances of smoked meats and loamy soil, Faiveley’s 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Village derives from over three hectares of vineyards owned by the house.

It’s medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with a rounded, charming personality that reveals none of the stereotypical Nuits asperity.”

~ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Vines have been grown in Nuits for over 1000 years and the history of the village is inseparable from its renowned vineyards. At the end of the 17th century, Louis XIV, who suffered from digestive problems, was advised by his doctor to drink a glass of Nuits every day.

History of Domaine Faiveley

Domaine Faiveley is one of the largest and most illustrious domaines in Burgundy, and has made its name with red wines made from the Pinot Noir grape.

It was founded in 1825 in the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges under Joseph Faiveley, a wine merchant who had a desire for travel. In the beginning of the 19th Century, trade had begun between Burgundy and northern Europe, predominantly along the rivers and canals connecting the regions. Domaine Faiveley is best known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, but small amounts of Aligoté are also planted in the Côte Chalonnaise.

Currently, Faiveley has 10 hectares (25 acres) of grand cru vineyards out of a total of 115 hectares (285 acres). Faiveley owns parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Bâtard-Montrachet, Volnay and Pommard to name a few, however these are very fragmented with no single site being more than one hectare (2.5 acres) The company is also a “”négoce””, buying grapes from other growers in the region.

Traditional winemaking with a modern twist is key in the production of wines from Domaine Faiveley. Modern barrel presses as well as custom wooden vats are combined with long aging in deep 19th-Century cellars to produce deep and rich red wines that need age to show their best.
