The strength of the 2015 vintage in Burgundy is indisputable, producing reds of a rich and distinctive style coupled with wonderful structure and excellent cellaring potential. These two carefully selected 2015 Faiveley Premier Cru’s represent some of the very best of the best – both wines having earned a coveted ‘sweet spot outstanding’ label from the master of Burgundy himself, the Burghound Allen Meadows.

Meadows points out that internal changes and new equipment at Faiveley have markedly improved the quality of the wines in recent years (that’s a massive nod to a producer who already possessed an outstanding reputation): ‘The very fine quality of the Faiveley 2015s is of course partially due to the excellence of the vintage but I credit their commitment to raising the standard of their game as well.’

With stocks extremely limited, it is first in best dressed although, as always, we do our best to share the love. This is a rare opportunity to partake in a parcel of exceptional value Premier Cru’s from an established producer in a legendary vintage.

2015 DOMAINE FAIVELEY LES CAZETIERS GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN PREMIER CRU – $219

92-95 pts, Burghound – Allen Meadows
Deeply pitched aromas of newly turned earth and animale notes characterize the brooding but notably ripe spiced plum and red berry fruit nose. The rich, full-bodied and tautly muscled flavors exhibit buckets of sappy dry extract that all but disguises the firm tannic spine on the immensely long and explosive finish. Cazetiers doesn’t get a whole lot better than this. Drink to 2032+

94 pts, James Suckling
This is very stretched and compressed in texture with polished tannins that pull the pretty fruit character through the wine with blueberry, cedar and light tobacco undertones. Long and pretty. Drink in 2020.

92-95 pts, Vinous – Stephen Tanzer
Bright red-ruby. Ripe, wonderfully complex scents of redcurrant, plum, dark cherry, animal fur, minerals and sexy oak, plus suggestions of darker berries. Round, silky and sweet, with its full ripeness leavened by saline, soil-driven minerality. A crunchy raspberry element is nicely shaped on the finish by suave tannins. The longest of these 2015s to this point in my tasting, this wine boasts grand cru volume. Its impression of rising length reminded me a bit of the superb Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées.

2015 DOMAINE FAIVELEY LES ST-GEORGES NUITS-ST-GOERGES PREMIER CRU – $249

92-94 pts, Burghound – Allen Meadows
This is more aromatically elegant with its spicy aromas of plum, rose petal, herbal tea, red cherry and earth. The tautly muscular, dense and mineral-driven flavors possess excellent size, weight and power while delivering strikingly good length on the beautifully balanced if very firm finish. Again, patience, and plenty of it, will be necessary. Drink to 2032+. 

92-95 pts, Vinous – Stephen Tanzer
Bright ruby-red. A step up in complexity and depth on the nose from the foregoing Nuits-Saint-Georges samples, offering sexy soil tones to the aromas of raspberry, minerals, smoke and dried flowers. Rich, pliant, soil-inflected wine with terrific breadth, depth and herbal lift. This fleshy yet brisk wine finishes with noble tannins and superb lingering fruit.
