Taking lessons learnt from the 2007 and 2011 vintages, Faiveley vinified very gently in 2021 and produced wines of fruit purity, precision and elegance.

Fairly dense crimson in colour. There is a solid weight of fruit on the nose, dark raspberry with some strawberry too. Some depth to this. A mix of mineral and floral for Jérôme while I find something earthier. Firm tannins at the finish but plenty of fruit to surround them. Drink from 2028-2036.
Domaine Faiveley, Echezeaux En Orveaux Grand Cru 2021 SOLD OUT

One of the paler colours, while the nose has been lifted, perhaps by 25% whole bunch vinification for this wine, or the white marly soil of En Orveaux. Delicate alpine strawberries. Once again, the crispness and precision of the Faiveley wines this year is evident, with the new wood aspect of the structure apparent. Drink from 2028-2036
Domaine Faiveley, Corton Clos des Cortons-Faiveley Grand Cru2021 SOLD OUT

A pretty fresh ruby crimson. The nose is elegant for Corton, fruit enhanced by a floral top note. Very good. Crisp, mineral, vertical, somewhat raw but with a fine quality of fruit, reasonable persistence. The new wood is not marking in flavour but does help to make the structure. Drink from 2028-2036.
