Les St. Georges may not be a buzzed about vineyard in the present day, but in the 19th century this terroir was routinely held alongside the greatest grand crus of the region. Only the Romanandeacute;es, Richebourg and La Tandacirc;che were considered equals. When a top producer treats LSG with the grand cru care it deserves in a great vintage, the wines can reach dizzying heights. Clive Coates does not hesitate to call this the andquot;best of the commune...simply the most complete, the most complex and the most profound.andquot; The best versions are fleshy and powerful with intense minerality and profound depth. We purchased several barrels of LSG from the 2014 vintage a few years agoandnbsp;from Erwan Faiveley. This is the cuvandeacute;e Georges Faiveley, one of two cuvandeacute;es of LSG and#39;Les Sires de Vergeyand#39; that the Hospices produce each year. This cuvandeacute;e represents the best parcels and oldest vines, named after Erwanand#39;s great-grandfather, an essential figure in the history of modern Burgundy and co-founder of the Confrandeacute;rie des Chevaliers du Tastevin.
