Meursault 1er Cru Blagny 2017

Domaine Faiveley


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: The hamlet of Blagny is located high on the hillside above Puligny Montrachet and Meursault and represents an entirely unique terroir. This 1er Cru vineyard is located directly adjacent to the 1er Cru “La Pièce Sous le Bois” overlooking the vineyards of Perrières and Puligny Champ Canet. Exposure is due east and soils are shallow marl and clay.

Vinification: Grapes are harvest by hand and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following primary fermentation the young wine is aged for 14-16 months in a combination of 1/3 new and 2/3 used oak barrels.

Additional Information

A brilliant light yellow color. The very pleasant expressive and complex nose opens up with floral and slightly woody notes. The attack is bold and frank, then this wine is full and harmonious on the palate. It has a certain vivaciousness, which gives it good length on the palate and very long-lasting aromas.

    "Bright light yellow. Aromas of pêche de vigne, riper nectarine and orange zest, complicated by a hint of vanilla and lifted by a mineral element. Riper and softer than the village Puligny but classically dry, with its nectarine and lime fruit flavors leading to a gripping finish with adamant minerality. Conveys a strong impression of terroir specificity. (13.5% alcohol)"
    Grade: 89-91 points
