Domaine Faiveley Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2004
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.
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."
