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: Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts is located on the lower slopes of Puligny Montrachet bordering Les Combettes higher up the slope and Meursault Charmes to the north. Soils are heavier and more typical of Meursault than Puligny. Exposure is to the east/ southeast
Vinification: The wine is aged for 13-15 months in a combination of new (1/3) and used oak barrels prior to a light fining and bottling.
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.
