Chambolle-Musigny AC 2016

Domaine Faiveley


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: The Domaine Faiveley Chambolle Musigny AC is sourced from multiple plots throughout the Chambolle Musigny appellation. Soils are stony and rich in limestone and exposures tend to be east/ southeast.

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 followed by blending of the cuvees. The young wines are aged in 30% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

Additional Information

A beautiful, brilliant garnet-red color. The nose is very pretty with woody and fruity notes. The whole is very pleasant. On the palate are grilled and fruity, very ripe cherry aromas. The tannins are present without being too intrusive or aggressive. An elegant wine, fine and pedigreed.

    "The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Village reveals an appealing but youthfully reserved nose of black raspberries, grilled squab, dark chocolate and warm spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with velvety tannins, succulent acids and a generously expansive finish. It can't quite match the purity or class of the domaine wines, but it's true to the domaine style."
