The Nuits-Saint-Georges premier cru Les Saint-Georges is one of the appellation's oldest climats, having been planted in the year 1000. It comes from limestone-clay soil with an easterly exposure. It has notes of spices and ripe fruit and supple, generous tannins. The wine is elegant and upholds the reputation of this premier cru perfectly.
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 1ers Crus, including several monopoly climates (Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu or the Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru). The vineyard remains very fragmented with an average appellation size of 1 hectare. In general, the wines of the domain are dense and fruity.
