Domaine/Joseph* FAIVELEY 2012 Côtes de Nuits tasted in November 2013, prior to bottling. (Nuits-Saint-Georges)

Technical director Jérôme Flous characterized 2012 as the most complicated of the years 2010-2013; one never felt that there was good weather all year long, he said. On the Côte de Nuits, Faiveley encountered no problems with hail or disease, but production nevertheless was down about 25% on the Côte de Nuits.
