From one of the most historic family domaines of Burgundy comes this luscious silky Gevrey Chambertin. Now in the hands of the seventh generation, their wines are even finer. Awarded 92 points by James Suckling, this 2016 is delicious now, or cellar.
"Very spicy perfumed nose draws you into this rich wine. Finish long and sophisticated"

In 1825 cobbler Pierre Faiveley started a wine merchant business in Nuits Saint Georges. So began one of the most famous houses in Burgundy. Through seven generations vineyards have been acquired, and just in 2013 they were delighted to gain 20 more hectares in this hallowed appellation. A most rare opportunity. Erwan Faiveley took over from his father in 2005 and he’s been assisted by sister Eve since 2014 (she’s the first daughter for seven generations!). Erwan set about fine tuning the style, to make the wines more elegant and defined, while still retaining their cellaring potential. Using Pinot Noir hand picked from vines planted since 1945, this is a sumptuous Gevrey, aged for 14 months in part new French oak. Decant early or cellar.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
