Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: 1er Cru Aux Beaux Bruns sits in the northern portion on the appellation, on the lower slopes of the hillside directly adjacent to 1er Cru Aux Echanges. Domaine Faiveley’s small parcel sits with a slight south/ southeast exposure and stony, shallow limestone soils.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.
Medium-bodied, full of lush red fruit and floral aromas. Energetic acidity and notes of red berries and flowers make this aromatic wine an absolute treat.
