Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red colour. The nose discloses black fruits, toasty notes and a hint of oak. The smooth, round attack gives way to a powerful and structured mid-palate. A well-balanced and very persistent wine with excellent ageing potential.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The proportion of de-stemmed grapes and whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press wine. The wines are aged for 16 months in French oak barrels (40-50% new oak and 50-60% one-wine barrels) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are left to age in our cellars at consistent, natural hygrometry and temperature.

Food Pairings – Duck breast with seared foie gras, game, rabbit stew, roasted or grilled red meats

Cellaring Potential – 7 to 12 years

THE VINTAGE

2018 in an early ripening vintage. We began the harvests on the 27th of August in Mercurey. 2018 is a very classic vintage that can be enjoyed in its youth and is already drinking beautifully. In the Côte de Nuits, our red wines are rich and warm, quite similar to the 2009s. These are ripe, sunny and well-structured wines with powerful aromas of ripe black fruits. Their seductive characters make them comparable to the 2017 and 2011 vintages.

Exposition – East

Soil Deep – brown limestone and gravel

Grape Variety – Pinot Noir

Characteristics of our plot

Years the vines were planted – 1945, 1954, 2005, 2011

 About Domaine Faiveley

Founded in 1825, Bourgognes Faiveley has been handed down from father to son for over 175 years. As the seventh generation to take the reins, François Faiveley manages, with equal amounts passion and competence, the largest family domaine in Burgundy. Methodically reconstructing vineyards fractured by French inheritance laws, Bourgognes Faiveley today owns more appellations in their entirety (monopoles) than any other domaine in Burgundy.
