"Les Saint-Georges" is considered to be one of the oldest climats in Bourgogne and was planted in the year 1000. It is also thought to be the very best Cru in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Our Domaine is the appellation's smallest producer and, for the last 10 years, we have been working towards being reclassified as a Grand Cru.

Winemaker notes

Deep ruby red hue. Powerful nose disclosing ripe fruits and warm spicy notes. A smooth, clean attack gives way to a well-balanced palate with rich, smooth tannins. This wine's harmonious structure and elegance perfectly represent this Premier Cru.

2019

Burghound 91-94♥: A moderately toasty nose reveals notes of both red and dark berries, newly turned earth and a touch of the sauvage. The mid-palate of the succulent, round and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors contrasts significantly with the overtly austere, compact, slightly warm and very serious finish that makes clear this is very much built for long-term cellaring. Excellent quality provided you have the patience to wait.

Wine Advocate 92-94: A mixture of domaine and purchased grapes that are vinified together, Faiveley's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges wafts from the glass with notes of sweet berries, plums, espresso roast, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and gourmand, it's sumptuous and charming, with lively acids and a ripe, enveloping core of fruit.

Vinous 93-95: The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru is an equal blend from Faiveley’s own vines and contract growers, plus a barrel from the Hospices de Nuits. It has a very perfumed and floral bouquet of red berry fruit complemented by wilted violets and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate offers crunchy red berry fruit laced with balsamic. Quite energetic and well defined toward the harmonious finish, which leaves a tang of white pepper on the aftertaste. This is a superb Les Saint-Georges.

Decanter 93: The Faiveley holding here is 0.23ha of very old vines, the oldest being planted in the 1930s. The wine is extremely ripe, with a deep plummy fruit and an accent that almost says cacao. One might mistake it for a voluptuous Volnay, but there is too much tannic structure. A delightful wine, which should age for decades.

2021

Wine Advocate 91-93: The 2021 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges reveals aromas of smoky berries, cherries and rich soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that's seamless and suave, framed by melting tannins. It's part domaine, part négoce.

Vinous 91-93: The 2021 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru comes from both Faiveley's and contracted fruit that Erwan Faiveley holds in high regard. It has a very impressive, detailed bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary, hints of rosemary and bay. The mineralité develops with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannins, nice sapidity here with an elegant and focused finish that is very promising.

2022

Wine Advocate 92-94: The 2022 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges unwinds in the glass with notes of dark berries, orange zest, exotic spices and peonies, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and richly layered palate, its generous core of fruit framed by sweet, powdery tannins. Seamless and complete, it's almost the stylistic opposite of the ethereal Damodes.

James Suckling 96-97: Captivating nose of red fruits and bitter chocolate. Mind-blowing concentration and finesse. Easily Grand Cru standard with super-fine tannins and stunning mineral acidity. The finish doesn't want to stop!

Vinous 91-93: The 2022 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru is aged in 50% new oak. It has quite a tertiary bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, red cherries becoming the most prominent scent with a touch of forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, quite a plush Les Saint-Georges with a dash of white pepper and allspice.
