If you are one of the lucky few who can secure a visit with Nicolas Faure in his cellar outside Nuits-St-Georges, watch your head! Yes, it is a very small cellar, really just a garage. But inside that garage is some of the most exciting wine happening in Burgundy.Nicolas is a farmer. That sounds cliché, but here it is absolutly the truth. His day job is as vineyard manager for his equally talented wife, Amelie Berthaud of Domaine Berthaud-Gerbet. Previously he worked vineyards at Prieur-Roche and Domaine de la Romanée Contí. His own domaine is a small collection of parcels that totals just 1 hectare, allowing him to farm them all by himself the way he wants to.He is not certified organic or biodynamic because he does not want to have to spray copper a specific number of times (among other regulations). But everything he does in the vineyard and the cellar is to make sure the terroir comes through.Nicolas is very thoughtful, very curious and ultimately very deliberate. Again, he does everything himself so that he has total control of the process. These wines are his expressions of the vineyard, nothing and no one else is involved.
