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.
This plot is located on the Pommard border, right in the heart of the Volnay Premier Crus. Domaine Faiveley acquired this plot in 2007.

The hand-picked harvest is vinified by producers we are in partnership with. Our Oenologist tastes each cuvée and only chooses the best wines from trusted producers.
The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines.
The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents on average one third of the cuvée. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.
2019 is a fresh and well-balanced vintage. Volumes are low although the quality is outstanding. Characterised by extreme weather conditions and perfectly healthy and aromatic grapes, 2019 saw weak rainfalls (-50% less than usual), several frosts spells in April/May followed by heatwave in summer. The harvests began on Monday 9 September in the Côte Chalonnaise and came to an end on the 21 September in the Côte de Nuits
The village of Volnay is renowned for its elegant red wines. This wine exudes aromas of small red and black fruits complemented by spicy notes and a touch of oak. Its rich flavours and silky smooth tannins make it an absolute pleasure for the palate.
