The Bourgogne Rouge is named after Joseph Faiveley (1823 – 1923; 2nd generation Faiveley), son of founder Pierre Faiveley. Joseph developed the wine business his father had founded by expanding his wine markets. An enthusiastic traveller, he journeyed extensively throughout Europe to promote the quality of his wines. Joseph initiated a policy that his descendents continued and refined to an art – purchasing vineyards situated in the best appellations and terroirs.
Beautiful, very deep, dark ruby color. Nice nose, already open, of fresh fruits (cherries). Pleasant on the palate and well-structured at the same time, the tannins are present without being too invasive, we sense the rich and very ripe grapes. This Burgundy is already enjoyable to drink now.
I had this wine for the first time on Thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed the medium bodied, silky texture and balanced tannins. Nice fruity Pinot at a reasonable price.
