"Under the helm of Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet since 2005, Domaine Faiveley is on a tear.  With its winemaking duo of technical director Jêrome Flous in the Côte d'Or and manager Julien Bordet in Côte Chalonnaise, Faiveley has made some of the best young wines I have tasted from the 2010, 2011 and 2012,." 

---Bruce Sanderson The Wine Spectator
We have received and amazing allocation of Domaine Faiveley's outstanding 2012 Burgundies. Yields were tiny but quality was amazing.

2012 Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley ...$219.99
Bright, deep red. Deep aromas of black cherry, crushed rock and graphite. Dense, sappy and energetic, offering outstanding depth to its soil-driven black cherry and saline flavors. Delivers an uncanny combination of chewy texture and verve. Finishes with palate-staining length and lift, as tactile as a solid. A great vin de terroir for the cellar

Rated 93-96/100 Wine Spectator

2012 Faiveley Nuits-St.-Georges Les Porêts St.-Georges...$89.99
Good medium red. Aromas of black cherry, menthol and sweet oak, lifted by topnotes of rose petal and violet. A step up in flavor and depth from the foregoing Nuits samples, showing lovely cut and lift to the perfumed flavors of sweet black cherry and menthol. At once chewy and refined, finishing with ripe tannins, attractive salinity and lingering perfume. Rated 91-94/100 The Wine Spectator

2012 Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Les Cazetiers...$115.99
Good full, medium red. Dark raspberry, smoke, game and leather on the nose, plus a suggestion of medicinal reserve. Supple and quite concentrated but youthfully closed, showing a saline minerality but limited sweetness today
Rated 92-95/100 The Wine Spectator

2012 Faiveley Chambolle Musigny Les Charmes...$139.99
Good bright red. Complex nose melds red berries, cardamom, flowers and soil tones. Ripe, smooth and lightly saline, with an earthy complexity giving this wine much more flavor interest than the Beaux-Bruns. In a rather feminine style, finishing with ripe tannins and subtle length. 
Rated 91-94/100 The Wine Spectator
Rated 90-93/100 Stephen Tanzer

2012 Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru...$219.99
From tank. Rich, powerful and fragrant, showing cherry, black currant, licorice, earth and spice flavors. Firm and dense, if reticent now, though vibrant and long.
Rated 92-95/100 The Wine Spectator

2012 Faiveley Clos de Myglands Mercurey...$39.99 / 750ml

2012 Faiveley Clos de Myglands Mercurey...$19.99 / 375ml
Bright medium red. Liqueur-like cherry and spices on the inviting nose. Dense and savory on the palate, with very good cut and saline complexity to the flavors of dark cherry, rose petal and spices. Finishes youthfully medicinal, persistent and perfumed, with excellent structure for Mercurey. The crop level here was about 40 hectoliters per hectare, or about 10% lower than usual, noted Bernard Hervet.
Rated 89-92/100 Wine Spectator

2012 Faiveley Nuits St George Les Damodes...$97.99
Bright dark red. Captivating precision to the aromas of flowers, crushed stone, chocolate and cardamom. Sweet, silky and smooth but with excellent energy to the dense berry and spice flavors. Still a bit youthfully tight but spreads out impressively on the long, perfumed finish. This weightless wine leaves the salivary glands quivering
Rated 91-93/100 Stephen Tanzer
