A dark garnet colour. The nose unveils woody, fruity and spicy scents. Then come a round, full attack on the palate with velvety, silky tannins and beautiful balance. This wine is characterised by finesse,charm and elegance.
Vines have been cultivated here for over 1,000 years. The history of the village is therefore intrinsically linked to that of its famous vineyards. At the end of the seventeenth century, Louis XIV, who suffered from digestive problems, was advised by his doctor to drink a glass of wine from Nuits everyday. In 1892, the village of Nuits added the name of its best plot ‘Saint-Georges’ to its name.
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.
