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 30+ acre 1er Cru Les Rugiens lies on the upper slopes above the village of Pommard. Domaine Faiveley’s .5ha single parcel was acquired in 2007 and runs from top to bottom in the northern section of the vineyard names “les Rugiens Hauts”. Sun exposure is east/ south-east with soils of scree (crushed rock) marl and iron oxide.
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 16 to 18 months.
Deep ruby red hue. The nose and palate are in perfect harmony and reveal aromas of black fruits, oak and spice. The attack is powerful and underpinned by direct, velvety tannins. This wine offers good structure and aromatic persistency.
