About this winery

Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

Notes about product

It would seem that this village came into existence in the 12th century, when laymen were working just nearby at Clos Vougeot for the monks of Cîteaux. Like many Côte de Nuits villages at the end of the 19th Century, Chambolle chose to add the name of its best cru to the village name, becoming Chambolle-Musigny in 1878.

Winemaking notes

The hand-picked harvest goes through a short pre-fermentary maceration before being vinified. For the duration of the 15-18 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature. It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for wines.

Tasting notes

A beautiful, brilliant garnet-red colour. The nose is very pretty with woody and fruity notes. On the palate there are grilled and fruity notes and very ripe cherry aromas. The tannins are present without being too intrusive or aggressive. An elegant wine, fine and pedigreed.

Aromas of blueberries, stones and flowers follow through to a full to medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Bright and beautiful. Love the steely undertone.

December 2017

Silky in texture and evoking black cherry, black currant and violet flavors, this red tightens up as it evolves on the palate, leaving a chalky sensation on the finish. The lasting impression is of sweet fruit.
