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

In the ninth century, the village of Vosne was a part of the St Vivant Priory. In 1866, it added ‘Romanée’ to its name. Vosne-Romanée, which is situated between Vougeot and Nuits-Saint-Georges, is one of the big names in Côte de Nuits.

Winemaking notes

The hand-picked harvest is vinified for Domaine Faiveley. The Oenologist tastes each cuvée and only chooses the best wines from trusted producers. The wine is matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for the 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.

Tasting notes

A ruby-red colour of beautiful intensity. The nose unveils light woody and fruity aromas. The wine is supple and fruity with fine and pleasant tannins, which give it remarkable balance and nice volume. This Vosne-Romanée is elegant and has good length on the palate.
