Domaine Faiveley is a wine producer in Burgundy, France situated in Nuits-Saint-Georges and established in 1825. Faiveley also runs a négociant business, but this activity is much smaller in volume than the wine production from their own vineyards.
Faiveley owns 120 hectares (300 acres) of vineyards in Burgundy, which makes them one of Burgundy's largest vineyard owners.

Good medium red. Aromas of black cherry, menthol and sweet oak, lifted by topnotes of rose petal and violet. A step up in flavor and depth from the foregoing Nuits samples, showing lovely cut and lift to the perfumed flavors of sweet black cherry and menthol. At once chewy and refined, finishing with ripe tannins, attractive salinity and lingering perfume.
There is excellent complexity to the well-layered nose of red pinot fruit, cherry, plum, earth and sandalwood. I very much like the mouth feel to the ripe and enveloping medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that really coats the palate on the muscular and powerful finish. This moderately austere effort is old school in style and character and will definitely need time in bottle to become more civilized. 89-92 points
