A brilliant pale yellow colour. The nose is fresh and elegant with varied white flower and citrus fruit aromas. This wine is very expressive and round on the palate giving a nice sensation of freshness. It has beautiful liveliness and very long-lasting aromas which make it a very pleasurable fine wine.

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.

Pouilly-Fuissé is the appellation for the finest white wines of the Maconnais region in southern Burgundy. They are produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintre, Fuisse, Solutre-Pouilly and Vergisson. The Pouilly-Fuissé appellation officially dates back to September 1936, although the boundaries were drawn up as early as December 1922. It currently covers around 2,000 acres (800ha) of hillside vineyards, planted on limestone rich clay soils over a granitic base. There is no Premier Cru system within the appellation.

The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 4 weeks and takes place for a proportion of the musts (50%) in French oak barrels, 10% of which are new oak. The ageing period lasts 8-10 months with regular stirring whilst the rest of the blend is aged in vats. This allows the wine to develop delicate woody notes whilst conserving its freshness and distinctive character.

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.
