93-95 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru is an equal blend from Faiveley’s own vines and contract growers, plus a barrel from the Hospices de Nuits. It has a very perfumed and floral bouquet of red berry fruit complemented by wilted violets and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate offers crunchy red berry fruit laced with balsamic. Quite energetic and well defined toward the harmonious finish, which leaves a tang of white pepper on the aftertaste. This is a superb Les Saint-Georges. Drink: 2024-2045. (Dec 2020)"

92-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Sunshine and water work together in Les St-Georges, so the fruit ripens easily. Since 2016 the wine has been half and half domaine and purchased fruit, vinified together, plus one barrel from the Hospices de Nuits auction added in 2019. Overall 14%. Beautiful succulent rich fruit here, the darkest of raspberries. This site can manage it, though it is true that there’s a touch of heat behind. Luxury stuff! (Nov 2020)"

92-94(+) points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "A mixture of domaine and purchased grapes that are vinified together, Faiveley's 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint-Georges wafts from the glass with notes of sweet berries, plums, espresso roast, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and gourmand, it's sumptuous and charming, with lively acids and a ripe, enveloping core of fruit. (Jan 2021)"

91-94 points/'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A moderately toasty nose reveals notes of both red and dark berries, newly turned earth and a touch of the sauvage. The mid-palate of the succulent, round and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors contrasts significantly with the overtly austere, compact, slightly warm and very serious finish that makes clear this is very much built for long-term cellaring. Excellent quality provided you have the patience to wait. Drink: 2034+. (Jan 2021)"

93 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "The Faiveley holding here is 0.23ha of very old vines, the oldest being planted in the 1930s. The wine is extremely ripe, with a deep plummy fruit and an accent that almost says cacao. One might mistake it for a voluptuous Volnay, but there is too much tannic structure. A delightful wine, which should age for decades. Drinking Window: 2024-2049. (Oct 2020)"
