Domaine Faiveley - Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Argillats 2016
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: "Les Argillats" is a village level lieu dit that sits just north of the villages of Nuits Saints Georges. Exposure is to the east with soils of clay and limestone. Domaine Faiveley farms a 1.34 acre parcel.
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 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.
Additional Details editThis wine offers a beautiful deep ruby hue and notes of toast, smoke and morello cherry on the nose. The palate reveals a smooth and rich attack characterized by red fruit aromas which give way to a firm tannic structure. A well-balanced wine with a long finish and excellent ageing potential.
