Winemaker's Notes:

"...Warm, peppery aromas of black cherry and forest floor scream Burgundy..."
-Wine News 93 Points

Bourgogne "Joseph Faiveley" Pinot Noir is named in honor of François Faiveley's great great grandfather. Born in 1823, Joseph took over and expanded the domaine which his father, Pierre, had founded in 1825. Under Joseph Faiveley, the domaine earned its reputation as one of Burgundy's finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise.

Beautiful very dark garnet colour. The nose is very expressive with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur and little black fruits. The attack is sweet, conveying the excellent ripeness of the 2003 harvest. This wine is greedy and rich on the palate. This generous red Burgundy is enjoyable already, but its important volume means it has interesting cellaring potential.
Cellaring potential : 5 to 7 years

About Domaine Faiveley:

Founded in 1825, Bourgognes Faiveley has been handed down from father to son for over 175 years. As the sixth generation to take the reins, François Faiveley manages, with equal amounts passion and competence, the largest family domaine in Burgundy. Methodically reconstructing vineyards fractured by French inheritance laws, Bourgognes Faiveley today owns more appellations in their entirety (monopoles) than any other domaine in Burgundy.

"Faiveley’s wines are... supremely clean and elegant: definitive examples of Pinot Noir... above all they have richness and breed, the thumbprint of a master winemaker."
