This Pinot Noir comes from Domaine Faiveley, one of the most significant Domaines in the rarefied region Burgundy. As one of the most accessible Premier Cru Burgundies on the market, it is extraordinary value for a wine of this quality. This is the perfect entry point for Premier Cru Burgundy.
Purity is the hallmark of this sleek red, whose vibrant structure marshals the flavours of cherry, raspberry and currant to a lingering conclusion. Balanced and focused, this fades gracefully with berry, orange zest and spice notes. Drink now through 2030.

Deep black plums on the nose with some spices and licorice. Serious concentration for this appellation. There is a nice freshness lifting the firm body and giving the long, spice and licorice finish a light touch. If you can't afford a top Côte de Nuits wine, this is a very good alternative. Drink or hold.

Bright, dark ruby-red. Lively scents of black cherry, licorice and flowers. Round and sweet but penetrating in the mouth; less showy than the Framboisière but more firmly structured. This juicy midweight offers a solid core of dark cherry and licorice flavour and finishes with rising floral length and a distinctly dark cast.

Mid crimson. Darker and sweeter than the Framboisière – lots of ripe cherry fruit. Firmer texture too, deeper and less juicy. Drink 2019-2024.
