BY Domaine Faiveley


2020 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St-Georges" 

" Faiveley has a small parcel in Les St-Georges that it supplements with purchased fruit that it both farms and picks. Faiveley finds the terroir to be a 'hot place, always very ripe', although in 2020 it kept the alcohol to 13.5%. The wine has a cassis and black plum fruit, with elements of earth and fresh saddle leather. With its appealingly dark fruit, it strikes me as typical of Nuits, an impression reinforced by the rich tannic structure. A lovely wine. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040. (CC) "

93-95 points Vinous

" The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru, a mixture of owned and contracted fruit, has a very floral bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of violet, building nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, fine energy and poise, slightly chalky in texture with satisfying salinity on the finish. This has a lot of potential. Excellent. (NM) "

92-94 points Burghound

" This is aromatically actually quite similar to the Cazetiers if perhaps just a bit fresher still. The sleeker if slightly less concentrated and powerful flavors also brim with minerality and dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the tautly muscular, more austere and more structured finale. This too is most impressive. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!* " (1/2022)

92-94 points Wine Advocate

" Offering up aromas of dark berries, red plums, sweet spices and a deft framing of new oak, the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges is medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, with a deep core of fruit, bright acids and powdery structuring tannins. This is a seamless, elegant wine that shows considerable promise. Jérôme Flous told me that he began harvest on August 19, and he was as pleased with the wines as he was taken aback by their vibrancy and saturated hues. It's a terrific set of wines for Faiveley, with lower alcohol and lower pHs than in 2019 but with incredible concentration and purity. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended.
