The wine has a beautiful violet color with rich, fruity aromas on the nose. Smooth, round and fleshy with a very rich structure. Deep ruby red with complex fruity and floral notes (rose, violet) and a subtle hint of oak on the nose. The attack is smooth with powerful tannins. This well-structured and very persistent wine is an honor to the reputation of this exceptional Grand Cru.

Domaine Faiveley Description

1825, Pierre Faiveley founded the firm that now bears the name Domaine Faiveley. At that time, the firm was a classic négociant, buying and selling wine. But from generation to generation, with a strong commitment to the quality of Burgundy’s patrimony, the Faiveley family has purchased vineyards and is today among the largest owners of classified vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. On October 15, 2013, in a surprise announcement, Domaine Faiveley reported it had acquired 20 hectares of vines previously owned by Domaine Dupont-Tisserandot, which is based in Gevrey-Chambertin. All together, the firm now presently owns 123 hectares of vineyards among which 12 hectares are grands crus and 27, premiers crus.

The objective of the family today, led by Erwan Faiveley, is to increase the firm’s holdings of great vineyards so that there can be complete control from vine to bottle across the entire range of wines. Along with this focus, Erwan Faiveley and General Manager Bernard Hervet have renovated the cellars, which now boast state-of-the-art barrel presses, custom-designed wooden vats and among the finest, air-cured oak casks available in the world.

Unlike many wine growers, Domaine Faiveley has united the management of its vineyards and its cellar under the direction of one technical director, Jerome Flous. The result is seamless integration of the wines. Domaine Faiveley wines are widely recognized for being among the finest produced in Burgundy and Domaine Faiveley among the finest wine producers in the world.

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

A high-toned mix of floral, wild cherry, currant and mint flavors marks this tightly wound style. This is supported by fine-grained oak and similarly refined tannins, yet has the intensity to match, ending in a long, cascading aftertaste of fruit, spice and chalk. Best from 2023 through 2045. 800 cases made. -BS

Vinous: 92-94 Points

Bright ruby-red. Alluring floral nose combines blackberry, black raspberry, violet and licorice. A savory and rather refined young Clos Vougeot, offering subtle notes of dark berries, flowers and earth rather than this grand cru’s more typical black cherry and herb qualities. Nothing rustic about this highly promising Clos Vougeot!
