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: Mercurey; located in the Côte Chalonnaise is the largest appellation in all of Burgundy with over 1600 acres under vine. Domaine Faiveley’s village Mercurey Blanc is sourced from 3 parcels in the heart of the appellation that total to 7.29 acres. Vines date back as far as 1974 and soils are primarily clay and limestone.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, sorted and pressed on site in Mercurey. Following vinification the young wines are brought to the domaine cellars in Nuits-St-Georges for aging. To preserve freshness only a small portion of the wine is aged in oak, with the majority staying in stainless steel for the 10-12 month aging period.
The elegant nose exudes fruity and floral notes. The palate of this Mercurey offers a harmonious structure and leaves a pleasant sensation of freshness. An easy drinking wine that is ideal served either as an aperitif or with a meal.
