Domaine Faiveley Nuits St George Les Pruliers 2017
Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for hundreds of years in their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir. Les Pruliers is one of the larger 1er Cru’s within the village of Nuits-St-Georges. The vineyard sits mid-hillside just to the south of the village, bordering Les Proces to the north and Ronciere to the south. Domaine Faiveley owns a single plot on the south, lower portion. Vines were planted as far back as 1960 and are planted in a rich, dark organic, limestone, gravel soil.
Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months. Sustainable and Organic Practices. Beautiful dark ruby color. The very enjoyable and expressive nose is a mixture of black and red-berry scents. On the palate, toasty, spicy and woody notes. The powerful but elegant tannins give this wine very nice structure.
