Domaine Nicolas Faure makes some of the rarest and the most in-demand wines in the world! Nicolas' wines are scintillating, pure and expressive of their origin...not shy on flavor by any means, following many of the methods of his mentors and idols - the vertical press of Leroy, the farming and strenuous selection of DRC, and the naturally low-yielding crops of his old vineyards all serve to create wines with an unmistakable signature of quality.

About the wine

Tasting notes

The nose is fresh and vivid: lovely mineral notes supporting the earthy aromas and fine organic fruit. The fruit is fresh and energetic – 2018s can be very vibrant – and is a lovely complement to the Aloxe terroir, giving a charming and vivid wine.
