Description

The finesse and richness of a Burgundy Grand Cru

The estate

Domaine Faiveley, historically established in Nuits-Saint-Georges in the heart of the Côte de Nuits since 1825, is at the head of one of the finest estates in Burgundy. The seventh generation of the family, in the guise of the connoisseur siblings Erwan and Eve Faiveley, has since 2005 carried forward the work of this precious Burgundy jewel. With a vineyard of over 120 hectares, the estate is one of the largest in Burgundy, and also one of the most prestigious. With exceptional Grand Cru and Premier Cru plots, the Faiveley family boasts a remarkable winegrowing heritage.

The vineyard

Although Domaine Faiveley was originally set up in the Côtes de Nuits at Nuits-Saint-Georges, the estate has gradually extended its vineyards to the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. Today, Domaine Faiveley owns 12 Grand Crus and 25 Premier Crus in Burgundy and oversees an exceptional winegrowing heritage.

The first traces of Echezeaux date back to the end of the 13th century. The Domaine Faiveley plot is located in a sub-climate of the appellation called "En Orveaux." This sub-climate is located on a slope close to the Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru "La Combe d'Orveau."

Winemaking and ageing

The hand-picked grapes undergo a short pre-fermentation maceration before vinification in truncated wooden vats. Vatting lasts more than 3 weeks, followed by a gentle, slow pressing to obtain very pure juice. The wines are aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels (60% new barrels and 40% one-wine barrels) in the estate's historic 19th century vaulted cellars.

Grape variety

Pinot Noir (100%)
