Bright ruby red. A step up in complexity and depth on the nose from the foregoing Nuits-Saint-Georges samples, offering sexy soil tones to the aromas of raspberry, minerals, smoke, and dried flowers. Rich, pliant, soil-inflected wine with terrific breadth, depth, and herbal lift. This fleshy yet brisk wine finishes with noble tannins and superb lingering fruit.

This is more aromatically elegant with its spicy aromas of plum, rose petal, herbal tea, red cherry, and earth. The tautly muscular, dense, and mineral-driven flavors possess excellent size, weight, and power while delivering strikingly good length on the beautifully balanced if very firm finish. Again, patience, and plenty of it, will be necessary.
Terroir: The famous 1er Cru Les Saint Georges sits just north of the village of Nuits Saint Georges and at just under 19 acres is one of the largest 1er Crus in the appellation. Domaine Faiveley's parcel is approximately .75 acres of old vines in the center of the vineyard. The parcel has an eastern exposure, light grade, and soil of light clay and limestone. Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration, the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly-toasted new oak barrels for 14-to-16 months. -- Importer
