This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.
The plot “Aux Beaux Bruns” is situated at the North of the village and just below “Les Groseilles” climate.
Exposition: East, South-East
Producers that we have selected entrust us with high-quality grapes that we vinify in NuitsSaint-Georges. The proportion of de stemmed grapes and whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press wine. The wines are aged for 16 months in French oak barrels (40-50% new oak and 50-60% onewine barrels) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are left to age in our cellars at consistent, natural hygrometry and temperature.
The weather conditions in 2015 were outstanding and the vintage is characterised by its rich and very distinctive style. Excellent ageing potential.
Bright garnet red color with purple highlights. The nose is particularly expressive and reveals complex aromas of ripe fruit and spices, roasted and smoked notes. On the palate, this wine is very fine and elegant with hints of berries (blackberry), spices and discreet wooden aromas. Its length is remarkable
