Domaine Faiveley Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2005
This Bourgogne is so well-balanced it can be enjoyed at present, but it could also be cellared for several years. Serve with red meats, pork and creamy cheeses.
"Deep, surprisingly complex aromas of black cherry, loamy earth and pencil. Vibrant flavors of raspberry, citrus and licorice. Warm, spicy finish."
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."
