Domaine Faiveley Sale!

Domaine Faiveley Sale!
Every once in a while we get a good deal from our importers on back vintages. We are happy to offer a few odds and ends from Domaine Faiveley at close to their original wholesale price, many of these are drinking quite beautifully now.

2013 Domaine Faiveley Les Saint Georges Nuits St Georges 1er Cru...$99.99

was $169.99
Good deep red. Captivating perfume of red berries, tobacco, spices and minerals. Large-scaled, silky and voluptuous, boasting compelling sweetness to its flavors of red fruits, iron, coffee, tobacco, spices and game. Wonderfully sexy, pliant wine with noble tannins and terrific finishing perfume. Much easier to taste today than either the Damodes or the PĂ´rets-Saint-Georges. In a class of its own among this premier crus from Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Rated 91-94/100 Stephen Tanzer Vinous

2013 Domaine Faiveley Nuits St Georges Les Damodes 1er Cru...$89.99 
was $109.99
A pretty red, this delivers strawberry, cherry and mineral flavors matched to a lean, athletic frame. Turns tight on the finish, but this should relax in a year or two. Exhibits a fine, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2032.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Spectator

2013 Domaine Faiveley Nuits St Georges Les Porets Saint Georges 1er Cru...$79.99 
was $99.99
Pretty dark fruits such as blackberry and blueberry with hints of spice. Full body, tight center palate, and fine tannins. Better in a year or two, but very delicate, firm and delicious.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling

2014 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Combe Aux Moines 1er Cru...$99.99 
was $129.99
A pure, cherry- and raspberry-flavored red, accented by smoke, spice and mineral notes. Shows a black pepper side as the flavors play out on the lingering aftertaste. Balanced, but needs time. Best from 2020 through 2035. only 10 cases imported.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2014 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru...$89.99 
was $103.99
*Sweet Spot - Outstanding*** A background but not invisible application of wood easily allows the cool and pure essence of red and dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced by almost pungent earth, animale, humus and underbrush nuances to shine. There is terrific punch and muscularity to the big-bodied, intense and mineral-driven flavors that display excellent delineation on the beautifully complex and hugely long finale. This is a very serious and built-to-age effort that will require plenty of patience before it reaches its peak.
Rated 92-94/100 Allan Meadows Burghound
