This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.
Burgundy’s vineyards date back to the Gallo-Roman era, but were abandoned for many years.
Thanks to the monks from the Abbey of Cîteaux, well-known for the quality of their work in the vines and their knowledge of terroir, these vineyards were developed from the XIth century.
Domaine Faiveley vinifies it Bourgogne Pinot Noir from grapes grown in the domain’s vineyards as well as selected grapes and musts from its partner winemakers. A quality control is made on each plot we have reserved so that we can check the quality of the grapes and the professionalism of our winegrowers partners.
The wine is partly aged in vats and partly in French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months in our cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
2018, an extravagant and early ripening vintage with extraordinary harvests. We began the harvests on the 27th of August (the earliest since 2003) in the Côte Chalonnaise with our Mercurey and our « Clos des Cortons Faiveley » Grand Cru. We began harvesting our other Grands Crus on the 3rd of September. The harvests came to a close on the 15th of September. The vines displayed excellent health conditions, the clusters were dense and perfectly ripe. A very classic vintage that can be enjoyed in its youth and is already drinking beautifully.
Beautiful ruby colour. This wine has pleasant, fresh, red-fruit aromas on the nose, which we also savour on the palate. It has rich and very ripe substance, with fine round tannins. It’s a very well-structured and pleasant wine.
