Notes about product
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 vineyard work and their knowledge of terroir, these vineyards were developed from the XIth century.
Domaine Faiveley vinifies its Bourgogne Pinot Noir from grapes grown in the domaines' vineyards as well as selected grapes and musts from its partner winemakers. A quality control is made on each reserved plotso that the quality of the grapes and the professionalism of the winergrowing partners can be checked. 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.
Beautiful ruby red hue with aromas of fresh red fruit. Rich and ripe flavours mingle with silky tannins giving a well-balanced and pleasant wine with a lot of finesse.
