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 25 acre 1er Cru Champ Gains sits on the upper slopes of the hillside just below La Garenne and north of the Grand Crus. The vineyard has an ideal slope to the southeast with light, well drained soils of clay and limestone.
Vinification: The wine is aged in oak barrels for 13-15 months, with an average of 1/3 new oak.
Attractive nose offering subtle and seductive notes of citrus and exotic fruits combined with delicate toasty notes. The palate is rich and well-balanced with a smooth mouthfeel and taut, mineral structure. A very harmonious wine with exceptional aromatic persistency.
