Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Craipillot 2014

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: Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Craipillot is a 6.8 acre vineyard situated south of the village of Gevrey Chambertin. The Domaine Faiveley parcel contains .33 acres of vines planted in very stony fossiliferous and white marl 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.

Additional Information

This wine has an attractive, deep ruby red color and intense aromas of stewed red fruits and a touch of oak on the nose. The palate reveals a smooth, round attack which gives way to an explosion of fresh fruits that linger on the elegant and very persistent finish.
