2017 1er Cru Les Champgains Domaine Faiveley


Another super elegant white Burgundy with very delicate and seductive floral notes, plus fresh and candied lemons. Elegant and polished on the palate with a long and complex, chalky finish. Try it in 2020. Drinking range: 2020 - Rating: 95 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com(Feb 2019)

* This is a pre-shipment/primeur offer. All orders are accepted under the TERMS of this offer which differ from the terms of the rest of the site.

There is a whiff of exoticism to the equally deftly wooded nose of acacia blossom, white peach and melon aromas. There is fine richness to the nicely voluminous flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the lightly stony finish that is dry, clean and focused.

Slightly cloudy (cask sample). Those lovely pear aromas of recently fermented Chardonnay. A touch of spice and clementine, so seductive even though so young. Creamy, rich and deep. Generous, ripe but fresh. Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru comes from a single parcel of just over one hectare. It has a taut, linear bouquet with scents of Golden Delicious apple, wax resin and almond. The palate is well balanced, offering orange zest and apricot, a keen thread of acidity and a bright, quite tensile finish. This should be delicious virtually straight from bottling.

A very nice intense aniseed aroma. This is fresh and long and pure and tight. I like this a lot. tense and long finish. Rating: 18.15 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2018)

The Faiveley whites have been improving every bit as emphatically as the domaine's reds over the last five years, favouring focus, precision and sensitive oak handling. This cool site has performed particularly well in 2017, showing plenty of zip and minerality alongside pear and lemongrass flavours and 30% new wood spice.

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.


OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
