Nuits-Saint-Georges AC 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: Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges AC is sourced from multiple plots throughout the appellation with a total of 4 acres of vines making up the blend.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats and is then blended prior to aging. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

Additional Information

    "Mingling aromas of wild berry fruits and orange rind with nuances of smoked meats and loamy soil, Faiveley's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Village derives from over three hectares of vineyards owned by the house. It's medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with a rounded, charming personality that reveals none of the stereotypical Nuits asperity."
