Domaine Faiveley - Echézeaux Grand Cru 2018
OverviewDomaine 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 90+ acres of Grand Cru Echézeaux are located on the upper slope of the hillside above Clos de Vougeot and just south of Le Musigny. Domaine Faiveley owns a total of 2.18 acres spread across multiple plots. 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 16 to 18 months.
Additional Details editA limpid, beautiful dark ruby-red color. The complex and very pleasant nose proposes an array of fruity and fiery scents. This wine is round and fruity on the palate. The blended and silky tannins give long-lasting aromas on the finish.
This Grand Cru has a full and balanced structure, pointing to good cellaring potential.
