Touches of honeysuckle, white and yellow fruits with excellent richness, depth and vibrant acidity – finished with toasted bread and vanilla.

A love of wine has been passed on from one Faiveley generation to the next for more than 180 years. The Domaine has always remained in the same family and today Erwan and Eve, the 7th generation of the Faiveley family, are at the helm and are keen to respect the traditions and savoir-faire of the family while looking to the future.

Domaine Faiveley believes that the quality of the wines comes from the fruit. To make sure they are able to get the best fruit and resulting wines, the team has invested in separate winemaking and viticulture teams in the Côte d’Or and Côte Chalonnaise, fine-tuned their barrel selection, and built a state-of-the-art winery in Mercurey. Last year, the family completed the renovation of their cellars in the heart of Nuits-St-Georges.

The result is classic Burgundies with wonderful longevity, aromatics and an unique, elegant style. Recognised as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, the Domaine continues to go from strength to strength under Erwan and Eve.

Meursault is the capital of fine white wines in Burgundy. It has exceptional terroirs for raising Chardonnay, especially on the south side of the village, bordering the prestigious Puligny-Montrachet.

Domaine Faiveley is responsible for all the work carried out in this vineyard and can therefore have total control over the quality of the grapes, as in the plots they own. The hand picked harvest is transported with care to the cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 13-15 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.

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.

Try with white Meats, Fish in a sauce, Turbot or Shellfish.
