By using the brand Joseph Faiveley for its négociant wines, made from purchased grapes, Faiveley is able to distinguish this range from its domaine wines. This Gevrey is luxuriously perfumed, finely structured with dusty tannins and already delicious Pinot Noir. It has a fine strain of acidity, which adds freshness to the solid character.
