On my November 2018 trip I had the opportunity to visit Domaine Faiveley to taste the 2017 vintage.
We were received at the now finished new Chai in Nuits-Saint-Georges by Erwan Faiveley who was ready with the best of the 2017s.
Impressions from the winery in Nuits-Saint-Georges
The rebuilding and renovation of the Nuits-Saint-Georges vinery is now finished … a truly remarkable project – and the result is stunningly beautiful. With the new facilities in place Faiveley will have optimal working conditions to take quality even higher in the years to come … this is a very exiting process to follow.
But lets go to the notes for the 2017s:

- The Clos Vougeot Tasting 2022During the Grand Jours de Bourgogne there is usually a Clos Vougeot tasting for the press; and so it was this year. It’s a good initiative, although some of the wines perhaps lacked the standard that one expects from a modern-day Clos Vougeot. The prices of grand cru Burgundy today somehow raise the consumer’s expectations ...
- Why not a white?White wines in hot years often carry a lot of weight; the grapes have perhaps had a bit of a harder go in the press, releasing more tannins. This, combined with the nature of Burgundy’s southern appellations (Macon and even Rully) can produce some rather imposing and quite tannic wines, as opposed to vivid, lively whites. These ...
