Domaine Faiveley - Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne 2015
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: 1er Cru La Garenne is a 24 acre vineyard high on the slopes of Puligny Montrachet directly above 1er Cru Champ-Gain. Domaine Faiveley farms a small 1/2 acre plot that is located on light, shallow and stony soils.
Vinification: Following a strict sorting the grapes are fermented at low temperatures for a period of 18-20 days followed by aging in the cellars for 14-16 months in a combination of new (2/3's) and used oak barrels.
Additional Details editThe nose is very pleasant and charms with its both subtle and enchanting character. There are citrus, floral and dried fruit aromas. This wine is very full on the palate and strikes a balance between smoothness and liveliness. A harmonious wine with long-lasting aromas and flavors.

(aged in 30% new oak, as with all of these 2015 premier crus): Bright, pale yellow. Yellow fruits and spices on the nose and palate, complicated by menthol and white pepper notes. Concentrated and brisk, showing a distinctly peppery herbal lift. Not quite as expressive today as the Meursault Charmes but boasts lovely energy.
