A very beautiful dark ruby colour. The powerful nose has hot spice and ripe fruit notes. The bold and round attack is followed by a balanced palate with supple and generous tannins. The harmony and elegance of this wine do credit to this well-known Premier Cru.
‘Les Saint-Georges’ is considered to be one of the most ancient plots of vines, already planted in the year 1000. At the end of the nineteenth century, the village of ‘Nuits’ was given the authorisation to add the famous ‘Saint-Georges’ cru to its name.

|Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Historically based in the Cote de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climats in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited.
Faiveley exploits more than 10 hectares of Grand Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climats that are exclusively owned by the family – these are the monopoles - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu,… and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru.
