  • About this winery

    Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

    This beautiful red evokes violet, raspberry, strawberry and kirsch aromas and flavors. Tightens up on the palate, showing more oak as this winds down on the finish. All the components are here, just needs time to come together. Terrific length.

    The 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is a blend of the original Faiveley parcel plus around 0.5 hectares gained through their acquisition of Dupont-Tisserandot. It has quite an intense bouquet of blackberry, briar and wild strawberry scents, coming across a little burly compared to the more nuanced Latricières-Chambertin. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, the palate perhaps showing more potential than the aromatics at the moment. There is very good weight here, fine mineralité and quite a precise, sustained finish. Give it five or six years in bottle.

    Bursting from the glass with a youthful but already expressive bouquet of dark berries, cassis, smoked meats and spices, the 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a supple, open-knit core of succulent and delicately sun-kissed fruit, framed by ripe acids and melting tannins. This is a charming, satiny-textured Mazis that's going to offer a broad drinking window. What's more, I suspect that its early accessibility belies the fact that it will gain in depth and weight with some bottle age.

    (from both Mazis Haut and Bas where the two parcels total a remarkable 1.20 ha). Here the expressive nose isn’t quite as toasty but it’s still far from subtle while managing not to unduly mask the more sauvage-inflected dark berry and forest floor scents. There good density and solid power to the muscular yet reasonably refined flavors that also evidence ample minerality on the beautifully long finale where the supporting tannins are slightly riper. This too should age effortlessly and I often prefer the Latricières but in 2017, the Mazis appears to have a slight edge in quality.
