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: Domaine Faiveley acquired the 1er Cru Clos des Issarts in 2002 after leasing it for over 50 years. This 1.5 acre parcel sits south of the village and directly adjacent to Grand Cru Ruchottes-Chambertin. Soils here are rich in limestone and exposure is east/ northeast.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 21 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 16 to 18 months.
Deep ruby red in color with notes of ripe fruits, oak and touch of licorice on the nose. The palate offers silky smooth tannins, an elegant mouthfeel, good balance and excellent length.
