Vines have been grown in Nuits for over 1000 years and the history of the village is inseparable from its renowned vineyards. At the end of the 17th century, Louis XIV, who suffered from digestive problems, was advised by his doctor to drink a glass of Nuits every day. In 1892, the village of "Nuits" added its name to that of its best climat: "Les Saint-Georges".

Our Nuits-Saint-Georges village now goes by the name of Nuits-Saint-Georges 'Les Montroziers'. This name pays tribute to the Faiveley family’s ancestors who were, in the early 20th century, industrial leaders and statesmen. Amongst them was Maurice Colrat de Montrozier, custodian of the seals, great uncle and witness to the marriage of Guy Faiveley (5th generation) and Yvonne Faiveley in June of 1945 - an occasion that marked the coming together of two very different industries: wine and rail. This charming Nuits-Saint-Georges village flies the flag high for the appellation. With its powerful nose offering spicy and woody notes, this cuvée lies at the meeting point between finesse and elegance. The palate discloses exceptional balance and velvety tannins. This appellation will take you on a journey of discovery into the very heart of the Côte de Nuits.

Winemaker notes

Intense garnet red hue and aromas of fruit, oak and spice on the nose. The palate reveals a smooth, rich attack, velvety tannins and good balance. A delicate, seductive and very elegant wine.

2022

Burghound 88-91: A discreet application of wood sets off slightly riper aromas of most red berry liqueur, the sauvage and earth. There is fine richness to the caressing medium weight flavors that possess fine length on the mildly rustic and lightly stony finish that is firm enough to need 6 to 10 years to fully resolve. This is also very good yet not especially austere and thus could easily be enjoyed young.

Wine Advocate 90-91: Faiveley's communal-level bottling, a blend of Agrillats and Lavières, has been rechristened as the 2022 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Montroziers, in honor of Maurice Colrat de Montrozier, French statesman and great uncle of Guy and Yvonnes Faiveley. Wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet raspberries, plums and peonies, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and perfumed, with a lively core of fruit underpinned by succulent acids.
