Domaine-Faiveley Winery

Based in Nuits-St-Georges, the famous Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825 and in more recent times, the domaine has greatly expanded its vineyards across the entire Côte d’Or. The grapes are entirely destemmed and fermented in a mix of new wooden vats for the top end wines and stainless steel for the lesser cuvées. Once notorious for being fairly austere, there has been less emphasis on extraction over the last ten years and the wines show increased freshness, purity of fruit and more judicious use of oak. A contender for one of the most improved domaines in Burgundy over the last decade.

Domaine Faiveley Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2010


94 Points Burghound

"Here too there are distinct fermentation aromas along with background notes of warm oak toast. This is slightly bigger and richer compared to the Bienvenues with an impressive abundance of mouth coating dry extract, indeed there is enough to impart a suave mouth feel to the big-bodied flavors that possess real power on the hugely long finish. Even by the typical out-sized standards of the ty .....

Domaine Faiveley Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu 2011


91 Points Burghound

"Here too there is a mild application of wood on the otherwise very fresh and cool red pinot fruit and soft earth suffused nose. There is an attractive sense of energy to the nicely detailed flavors and a touch of minerality on the spicy, balanced and persistent finish. This is really quite refined as the firm but fine tannins are well integrated on the long finish where the wood resurfaces.& .....

Domaine Faiveley Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu 2010


93 Points Wine Spectator

"Classic ruby. This is very pinot with a highly expressive nose of ripe cherry and raspberry that is cut with notes of wet stone and earth. The medium-bodied flavors are attractively rich and very supple on the mid-palate yet tighten up significantly on the firmer, serious and persistent finish where a touch of wood influence arrives just at the end." 88-91 Points Burghound "An exp .....

Domaine Faiveley Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2010


94 Points Burghound

"A mildly toasty nose is presently dominated by strong fermentation aromas that push the underlying fruit to the background. By contrast, there is good freshness and plenty of punch to the rich, deep, intense and admirably refined medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky mouth feel, all wrapped in a highly complex, long and very stylish finish. This is a very classy effort and, nose aside, .....

Domaine Faiveley Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru 2008


95 Points Burghound

"This too evidenced a hint of reduction that almost immediately dissipated. Otherwise, a background touch of wood highlights an expressive and impressively nuanced nose of red berry fruit that displays a broad range of spice and earth note. At present, this is really very backward though there is very good richness to the full-bodied and quite serious flavors that possess plenty of mid-palate .....

Domaine Faiveley Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Aux Beaux Bruns 2011


92 Points Wine Spectator

"This is riper and more deeply pitched with notes of black cherry, raspberry and earth. There is a generous aspect to the supple, rich and very round medium-bodied flavors that display a touch of finishing wood. As Beaux Bruns can often be, this is more powerful than elegant though it's by no means rustic. I would advise holding this for 6 to 8 years first." 89-91 Points Burghound & .....

Domaine Faiveley Clos-de-Vougeot Grand Cru 2008


94 Points Burghound

"In contrast to what is typical, this is actually quite aromatically elegant with a restrained and pure nose of intensely earthy and slightly sauvage nuances on the primarily red berry fruit that is as complex as the detailed yet robust big-bodied flavors that avoid any sense of underlying rusticity to the firm tannic spine on the powerful, balanced and seriously long finish of mild austerity .....

Domaine Faiveley Corton Clos-des Cortons Grand Cru 2008


94 Points Burghound

"Almost invisible wood allows the lightly spiced and earthy red berry fruit aromas that are admirably pure to merge into relatively supple yet well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a lingering and solidly firm finish. This is unusually approachable but I expect that it will tighten up considerably after it is bottled. If so, this will definitely be a wine for the patient.&q .....

Domaine Faiveley Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2010


96 Points Burghound

"In contrast to its two grands crus stable mates, this has already eaten almost all of its wood which allows the ripe green fruit, stone, apple and subtle spice hints to shine. There is very good richness to the precise and overtly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a stunningly long and cuts-like-a-knife finish. This bone dry effort is almost painfully intense and there is a .....

Domaine Faiveley Echezeaux Grand Cru 2008


93 Points Burghound

"An overtly spicy nose features notes of anise, clove and cinnamon as well as warm earth and both red and blue pinot fruit that is very much in keeping with the seductive quality of the mouth coating and powerful flavors that display a long finish that speaks clearly of sandalwood." 91-93 Points Burghound

Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts 2011


93 Points Burghound

"Comment: Outstanding - There is an appealing freshness to the cherry, raspberry, truffle and earth-infused nose that even has an interesting if odd hint of citrus peel to it. There is excellent richness and volume to the punchy middle weight flavors that display fine depth and length on the mineral-laden finish. This is first rate and one of the better young examples of this wine that I have .....

Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru La Combe Aux Moines 2011


92 Points Wine Spectator

"Very generous wood dominates the otherwise fresh nose of dark berry, earth and humus aromas. The supple and round medium weight flavors possess good mid-palate concentration and verve before terminating in an austere, cool and mineral-inflected finish. My predicted range assumes that the wood can be successfully integrated." 89-92 Points Burghound "Lean and sinewy, with sandalwood .....

Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2011


93 Points Burghound

"Comment: Outstanding - A background application of wood does not materially diminish the layered and classic Cazetiers nose of humus, earth, animale, stone and cool wild dark berry fruit aromas. I very much like the mouth feel to the tautly muscled, intense and powerful flavors that possess real drive on the very firmly structured but not hard finish that delivers exceptionally good length. .....

Domaine Faiveley Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2008


94 Points Burghound

"A distinctly cool and ultra-elegant nose of restrained and exceptionally fresh mineral-infused red pinot fruit gives way to stone-inflected, tightly focused and delineated middle weight plus flavors that are beautifully tension-filled. This possesses a beguiling personality as there's real verve and punch on the delicious but linear finish where more minerality surfaces. This strikingly .....

Domaine Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru 2008


94 Points Burghound

"Here there is a very mild touch of reduction to the otherwise intensely animale nose of earthy red pinot, blue berry and a briar hint. There is excellent concentration to the medium weight plus flavors that possess ample mid-palate sap that buffers the very firm tannins on the powerful and ever-so-slightly rustic finish that delivers explosive length. An impressive Mazis built to age over th .....

Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos Du Roy 2010

"A more deeply pitched nose of red currant and blue berries is laced with ample earth influence that continues onto the rich, pure and attractively voluminous flavors that possess good dry extract that buffers the otherwise moderately firm tannins. There is a textured mouth feel and this culminates in a long and dusty finish. This is relatively fine for what it is though there is still a touc .....

Domaine Faiveley Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Aux Chaignots 2011


92 Points Burghound

"Thankfully the wood treatment here is much more discreet than the Vignerondes which allows the natural spiciness of a classic Chaignots to shine along with the supported red and dark berry fruit and earth components. There is a lovely texture to the supple and round middle weight flavors that are blessed plenty of dry extract that coats the mouth on the delicious, balanced and lightly minera .....

Domaine Faiveley Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes 2011


92 Points Burghound

"A spicy, fresh and mildly exotic nose of tea, wild red berries and plenty of pungent earth gives way to more obvious mineral-inflected flavors that possess a taut muscularity on the balanced, understated and attractively persistent finish. Even with the muscle, this is essentially a wine of finesse as the supporting tannins are really quite fine." 90-92 Points Burghound "On the ta .....

Domaine Faiveley Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Porêts St Georges 2011


93 Points Burghound

"Comment: Outstanding - A more deeply pitched and notably more complex nose that offers up notes of red and dark berries, sauvage nuances, underbrush and a hint of spice, all trimmed in just enough oak to notice. There is very solid mid-palate concentration to the larger-scaled flavors that possess an admirable amount of structure-buffering dry extract before culminating in an energetic, bala .....

Domaine Faiveley Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Vignerondes 2011


91 Points Burghound

"A generously wooded nose fights with the ripe mélange of red and black cherry aromas that precede the supple, round and almost easy flavors yet there is good energy on the much more tightly focused finish that displays firm but fine tannins. This could be going through an awkward phase but assuming that the sample I tasted was truly representative, the wood treatment here is annoying .....
