2019 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Damodes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1527040 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of cassis, plums, orange rind and spicy new oak preface Faiveley's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes, a medium to full-bodied, deep and lively wine with a concentrated core of fruit, framed by powdery tannins. Concluding with a long, mineral finish, it's another fine bottling from this cool, high-altitude and northeast-exposed site. Jérôme Flous told me that Faiveley began picking on September 9, finishing by the 20th, and that yields averaged out at around 35 hectoliters per hectare in white and a little less in red. Comparing the 2019 vintage to "a more concentrated version of 2010," he admires—as I do—its vibrant fruit tones and refined tannins, finding it more elegant than 2018. The quality of the red wines chez Faiveley is old news, and for more information on this firm's evolution I direct readers to my report published in the August 2020 Week 1 issue of The Wine Advocate. It's worth underlining, however, how good the whites are these days: Flous tells me that he now includes fûts from Damy and Chassin in the white wine barrel program, and in the last few vintages, I've found the wines' new oak component better and better integrated.

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Spicy aromas of dark raspberry, cherry and earth give way to impressively voluminous yet sleek middle weight flavors that display lovely delineation on the austere finish. This possesses good if not stunning length as it eventually falls off due to the fact that the tannins become a bit angular. With that said, I suspect that the overall sense of harmony will improve as the tannins resolve. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Nuits Saints-Georges Les Damodes 1er Cru has a soft, supple bouquet, the 100% destemming lending freshness and sensuality, and a little brine emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, touches of blood orange and orange peel lacing the dark berry and spicy notes toward the finish. Give this 3–5 years in bottle.

K&L Notes

90-93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "A cooler site at the top of the hill, on sandy soil which fortunately does not appear to have dried out. Rich purple, lively, ripe cherry with a few raspberry infiltrations, Nicely proportioned oak. Tasted: November 2020."
