Wine Critic Reviews:

...Faiveley's 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a ravishing, pure and sensual bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit laced with minerals... The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, very focused and tensile with shimmering, effervescent red fruit fanning out on the finish. Stunning... built for the long-term.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate | 96 RP
Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Faiveley's 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a ravishing, pure and sensual bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit laced with minerals. It needs another two or three years to fully assimilate. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, very focused and tensile with shimmering, effervescent red fruit fanning out on the finish. Stunning—but it is unquestionably built for the long-term. Tasted September 2017.

A whiff of chalk in the aroma leads to flavors of strawberry, currant and cherry in this racy red. There is an element of tension between fruit and mineral elements, offering a silky texture and a dense matrix of tannins. The long aftertaste is resonant and compelling. Best from 2023 through 2045. 60 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 96 WS
Big, ripe and smoky, this wine is generous while having great freshness. It's packed with fresh strawberries and raspberries along with powerful tannins. The combination of structure and great fruit will allow this wine to age. Drink from 2022.

(Domaine Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Red) A kaleidoscopically spicy and broad-ranging nose is composed of pure and elegant red and dark berries along with hints of game, smoke, sandalwood, dried flowers and orange peel. The refined, intense and mineral-driven imposingly-scaled flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering stunningly good length on the delineated finish that just goes on and on. This is a remarkable wine in every sense though once again it is not for the faint of heart as this too is going to require seriously extended cellaring to shed its fine but dense tannic spine. Patience, and lots of it, is absolutely essential. (Drink starting 2034).

Burghound | 94-97 BH
Bright, full red. Alluring, terroir-driven aromas of raspberry, minerals, dried flowers, smoky oak and game. Supple on entry, then reticent and taut in the middle, but already showing outstanding energy and depth, not to mention a slightly musky wildness, to its flavors of raspberry, smoky oak and dried flowers. Between the wine's firm acidity, great mineral verve, strong tongue-dusting tannins and finishing grip, this outstanding Clos de Bèze is going to require considerable patience and should evolve positively for up to three decades. My bottle held up for days in the recorked bottle.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Faiveley: With a whopping 125 hectares of grape-nurturing land under their ownership, Domaine Faiveley has access to some of the finest, richest soils in all of Burgundy. Few wineries can compete with this absolute titan, and their consistency keeps their reputation as pristine as the delicious elixir that comes out of their barrels. Their insistence on a low-yield traditionalist approach makes every new bottle as desirable and mouth-watering as an established classic. Producing incredibly diverse wines, you can find a plethora of different flavor profiles to fall in love with. No matter what your preference is, you will remember their wines for decades to come, as they leave you satisfied but also puzzled as to how such a level of quality can be maintained with their degree of consistency.

Every little sub-region of the area boasts a unique soil composition, which, when combined with the area's climate conditions, creates an incredibly diverse and appealing selection of fine wines. Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy. And what better way to spend a comfy summer afternoon with your friends and family than with a classy bottle from some of the region's most reputable wineries?

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
OWC No
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
