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.
Wonderful aromas of plums, orange peel and stones. Full-bodied, round and soft with a juicy finish. A deep and rich pinot. Fantastic wine. Made from six hectares. Best ever?

Medium red. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, pomegranate, tobacco and brown spices. A wine with moderate weight and fleshiness; dusty, spicy flavors of redcurrant, iron, tobacco and earth convey the ripeness of the vintage. Shows good breadth but not yet especially filled in. Hints of leather and earth add complexity. This satisfying, soil-driven wine is already quite expressive, Finishes with dusty tannins and a very good saline persistence.
Deep crimson for a Chalonnaise red. Rather suave and world-weary on the nose! As though it has been round the block a few times. A little austere on the end but very lip-smacking. Should be a great food partner. One to choose from a restaurant wine list when in doubt?

Ripe and pure, featuring cherry, blackberry, raspberry, mineral and light toast notes. Balanced and intense, playing out on the long, mouthwatering finish.
