Then an incredible density of pure rich purple fruit which soars across the palate. Really beautifully balanced with complex fruit notes, I put the sweet cherries slightly in the lead. Good acidity too, everything is perfectly together. Note that Faiveley have decided not to show their Les Ouvrées Rodin for tasting at the En Primeur stage.

Two old-vine parcels have produced a wine that has coped effortlessly with the elements, marrying floral perfume with layers of red and black fruits and effortless concentration. The 50% new wood embellishes rather than dominates the finish. (Drink between 2023-2033)

The mouthfeel of the big-bodied flavors possess a lovely sense of underlying tension along with good detail and a subtle minerality on the equally firm but somewhat less austere finale. This is slightly more complete and a wine of class and grace though make no mistake, if you wish to see it at its peak, a good deal of patience is advised.

On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with terrific energy and structural refinement despite the wine's texture and volume and a long, saline finish. This was an excellent tasting with Faiveley's technical director Jérôme Flous, who has handled the 2018 vintage very skillfully indeed. Flous told me that, in his opinion, wines with comparatively low acidity need compensatory tannin to age and to temper their sweetness of fruit. In that regard, he feels he did not extract sufficiently, so he took things a little further in 2018. I am happy to report that—even if extraction is something of a dirty word among the Burgundy commentariat—Flous struck a good balance, producing deep and complex wines with texture and structure, yes, but no asperity in the least. Elegant but age worthy, they exemplify Faiveley's contemporary style and come recommended. These wines were tasted from representative samples at Faiveley's Nuits-Saint-Georges facility. Readers looking for my notes on the 2017 Faiveley wines from bottle can find them in the End of November 2019 Issue of The Wine Advocate.
