Domaine Faiveley - Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Porêts St-Georges 2018
Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: 1er Cru Les Porêts St-Georges is a small vineyard of just 18 acres just south of the main village of Nuits-St-Georges. Domaine Faiveley farms a parcel of 4+ acres that lies along the vineyards southern border with Les Cailles. Sun exposure is to the east and soils are dark brown with limestone and granite gravel.
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.
Additional Details editDeep ruby red color. The nose discloses black fruits, toasty notes and a hint of oak. The smooth, round attack gives way to a powerful and structured mid-palate. A well-balanced and very persistent wine with excellent ageing potential.
