Nuits-St-Georges is Faiveley's home base, so they know a thing or two when it comes to making a village wine. This is a wine that manages to combine the mineral toughness of Nuits bottlings with an extra layer of rich plum skin and juice flavor. There is a light strawberry jam character that offers some final sweetness.
