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: Mazis-Chambertin is located mid hillside bordering Clos-de-Bèze to the south and Ruchottes-Chambertin further up the slope. Domaine Faiveley owns a total of 3 acres spread across parcels within Mazis-Haut and Bas. Exposure is due east with loose gravely well drained soil. Vines date back to 1937.
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 60-70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.
This wine reveals a deep ruby red hue and intense notes of oak, spice and red fruits on the nose. The palate offers the same aromas and the nose with a harmonious combination of fruity and oaky notes. With its smooth tannins and long, lingering finish, this well-balanced wine is the epitome of elegance.
