About this Item

Chambertin Clos De Beze, 1996
4 (1 x 4) 750ml
In 1825, pioneer Pierre Faiveley founded a merchant business in Nuits-Saint-Georges. His passion for trading and ageing wines soon led him to purchase his own vine parcels and establish a domaine to grow and produce his own wines. Today, at 115 hectares, Domaine Faiveley is one of the biggest in Burgundy and many consider it one of the best. Under the management of 7th generation Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet as Managing Director, there has been a considerable investment in expanding the domaine’s vineyard holdings, including plots in Pommard, Volnay, Monthélie, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet and Meursault. Many of Faiveley's top cuvées are bottled by hand with no filtration, resulting in clean, luxurious wines that showcase the best of Pinot Noir. Their concentration and richness are difficult to rival.

Critics Ratings

‘I hadn't had the opportunity to try this in over a decade and time has had a positive effect as the nose is much more complex with its earth and gamy secondary aromas that are now displaying whispers of sous-bois as well. There is good richness in the context of what is typical for the vintage along with the still notably firm middle weight flavors that exhibit ample minerality on the bright and focused finish that delivers sneaky good depth and length. For my taste this could still use a few more years of cellar time and while it's not likely to ever be a great vintage for this storied wine, it's at least competent.’ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91/100 (Apr 2016)
