Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Chaignots Faiveley 2005

The wine

The Nuits Saint-Georges Premier Cru Aux Chaignots is located on brown limestone and gravelly soil, with vines aged around 50 years. Its name comes from an old type of oak wood. It is characterised by stunning texture, and is dense, striking the perfect balance between power and finesse, with an expressive nose. It features aromas of red fruits on the palate as well as grilled, toasted notes.

About the Producer Faiveley

The Faiveley family has been running this domain since 1825. In 2005 Erwan Faiveley succeeded his father in the management of the property which is one of the largest ones in Burgundy: 10 hectares of Grands Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climates where it is the sole owner (Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune Premier Cru Clos de l'Ecu and Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru). The vineyards remain very fragmented with an average size of 1 hectare in each appellation. In general, the wines of the domain are dense and fruity. The estate was the first in Burgundy to convert 120 hectares of vines to sustainable agriculture, having obtained the HVE (High Environmental Value)) certificate. Its conversion to organic practices started in 2022 and 2025 will be the first vintage to be certified organic.
