Domaine Faiveley Nuits-Saint-Georges is an intense garnet red hue with aromas of fruit, oak and spice on the nose. The palate reveals a smooth, rich attack, velvety tannins and good balance. A delicate, seductive and very elegant wine.
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. In 1892, the village of “Nuits” added its name to that of its best climat: “Les Saint-Georges”.
A love of wine has been passed on from one Faiveley generation to the next for almost two centuries. The Domaine has always remained in the same family and today Erwan and Eve, the 7th generation of the Faiveley family, are at the helm and are keen to respect the traditions and savoir-faire of the family while looking to the future. Domaine Faiveley believes that the quality of the wines comes from the fruit. To make sure they are able to get the best fruit and resulting wines, the team has invested in separate winemaking and viticulture teams in the Côte d’Or and Côte Chalonnaise, fine-tuned their barrel selection, and built a state-of-the-art winery in Mercurey. Last year, the family completed the renovation of their cellars in the heart of Nuits-St-Georges. The result is classic Burgundies with wonderful longevity, aromatics and an unique, elegant style. Recognised as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, the Domaine continues to go from strength to strength under Erwan and Eve.
