A dark garnet colour. The nose unveils woody, fruity and spicy scents. Then come a round, full attack on the palate with velvety, silky tannins and beautiful balance. This wine is characterised by finesse, charm and elegance.

This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.

Vines have been cultivated here for over 1,000 years. The history of the village is therefore intrinsically linked to that of its famous vineyards. At the end of the seventeenth century, Louis XIV, who suffered from digestive problems, was advised by his doctor to drink a glass of wine from Nuits everyday. In 1892, the village of Nuits added the name of its best plot ‘Saint-Georges’ to its name.

The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration before being vinified. For the duration of the 18-20 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature. It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents on average two thirds of the cuvée. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

The 2014 vintage produced well-balanced, intensely coloured, rich and aromatic wines. A classic Burgundian vintage.

Try with breast of Duck, Quail, Haunch of Venison.

"An alluring mix of cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors combine in this supple red. Rich and juicy, with a lingering aftertaste of ripe fruit and tangy acidity."
