It was in 1825 that the first Faiveley founded the house Faiveley in Nuit St Georges, still named as such and still run by a Faiveley.
It is the 7th generation that today is at the head of this prestigious House. Over time, this House has acquired many Domaines including the iconic Monopole Clos des Cortons Faiveley" located in Rognet-Corton acquired in 1874.
This family has developed deep relationships of trust over time with many Burgundian winemakers who have become preferred suppliers.
It is thanks to its roots and exceptional ties that the House is thus able to offer a wide range of wines from Bourgogne.
Description Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru "Lavaux Saint Jacques" 2018.
Once again, Domaine Faiveley demonstrates its exceptional expertise with its Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru "Lavaux Saint Jacques" 2018.
Perfectly illustrating the elegance and finesse that a great wine from Bourgogne can offer and indeed adored by Jérome Flous - the Technical Director of Domaine - this wine is recognized as one of the three best Premiers Crus from Gevrey-Chambertin, on a par with the famous "Cazetiers" and "Clos Saint-Jacques".
The one-hectare, south-facing parcel, acquired in 2013, features soils of fossiliferous rock and clay. This unique composition lends the wine a remarkable delicacy and elegance.
On tasting, the wine surprises with its rich, generous nose, brimming with aromas of small black fruits, evoking a basket of blackberries and blueberries. This generosity is echoed on the palate, where the wine reveals itself to be powerful, warm and concentrated.
Veluted, the tannins offer a silky, elegant structure to the whole. The finish is persistent, carried by subtle notes of leather that linger on the taste buds.
This combination of elegance and power makes the 2018 "Lavaux Saint Jacques" an exceptional wine and a preferred choice for connoisseurs and lovers of fine wines.
This Premier Cru is ideal for accompanying refined and elaborate dishes that will highlight the richness and complexity of its aromas.
