Domaine Faiveley was founded by Pierre Faiveley in 1825. Today, it is Erwan Faiveley who runs the domaine. As the seventh generation, Erwan has renewed and reinforced his team and invested in the winery and the vineyards. He has brought new dynamics to the family business, while remaining faithful to his predecessors' values. The Faiveley family have a reputation for wines with serious aging potential, though recently the wines have adapted an approachability in youth in line with current demands.
A kaleidoscopically spicy and broad-ranging nose is composed of pure and elegant red and dark berries along with hints of game, smoke, sandalwood, dried flowers and orange peel. The refined, intense and mineral-driven imposingly-scaled flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering stunningly good length on the delineated finish that just goes on and on. This is a remarkable wine in every sense though once again it is not for the faint of heart as this too is going to require seriously extended cellaring to shed its fine but dense tannic spine. Patience, and lots of it, is absolutely essential.
Bright ruby-red. Incredibly cerebral nose combines scents of black raspberry, dried flowers, caramel, resin and smoke, all lifted by a lively mineral quality. Pure silk on the palate, but also with outstanding energy and definition to the flavors of black raspberry and saline minerality. A real wake-up call to the mouth! Noble tannins reach the front teeth on the very long back end. Superb.
