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
