Joseph Faiveley Cote de Nuits-Villages 2002
has a completely backward but superbly complex nose and displays layered aromas that run to game and underbrush as well as ripe red and dark berry fruit trimmed in a bit of wood toast.This gives way to rich, sweet and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that possess plenty of muscle and real volume on the explosive, textured and sappy finish that is impressively concentrated and wonderfully long. Joseph Faiveley Cote de Nuits-Villages 2002 is a wine to be savoured.
The name “Côte de Nuits” comes from the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, like Beaune, the capital of its own Côte (or slope). The soil is a mixture of clay and limestone.
