Domaine Faiveley - Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées 2017
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 Chambolle Musigny Les Fuées sits north of the village of Chambolle and is directly adjacent to and shares the same terroir as the Grand Cru Bonnes-Marres. Domaine Faiveley's .5 acre parcel lies mid slope directly bordering Bonnes Marees. Exposure is east to southeast and soils are shallow with limestone and red clay.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short 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.
Additional Details editIntense ruby red hue. The nose reveals intense and complex aromas of ripe fruits underpinned by a touch of smoke and spice. The smooth attack gives way to a full-bodied, elegant palate.
