Domaine Faiveley - Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Lavières 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: Nuits-St-Georges Les Lavières is sourced from a 2.65 acre parcel located north of the village and just below the 1er Crus on the hillside. Soils are rich in clay and limestone and exposure is due east.
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 Details editDeep, dark ruby red in color and an explosion of sun-drenched fruits and a touch of oak on the nose. The palate offers good body and structure with silky smooth tannins. The discreet oak integrates perfectly with the fruit to give an exceptionally elegant wine.
