A stunning Premier Cru from the Côte de Nuits. 

The spring was extremely dry – which gave the grapes for this vintage thick skins and protected them from disease – while the summer was unusually rainy. Water stress was succeeded by water excess and so that led to a very early harvest without excessive maturity; characteristics of 2007 mixed with those of 2010. The red wines have a dark ruby colour, a high concentration, well balanced and the tannins are soft and ripe. They have a beautiful structure, flavours are fresh and spicy. Elegant notes of fresh fig are typical of 2011.

The wine is a deep ruby-red colour. The nose has black fruit notes and woody, spicy aromas.  After a round and full attack, this wine proves powerful and full-bodied. It is well-balanced and of high quality, with good cellaring potential.

This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.

For more than 180 years the love of wine has been passed on from one Faiveley generation to the next. The Domaine has remained in the same family and always completely independent. Today Erwan Faiveley is one of the youngest directors of a Burgundy Domaine on record. Erwan is keen to respect the traditions and savoir-faire of the Faiveley family, while paying great attention to the professionals around him, as his vision for the future begins to take shape.

Domaine Faiveley is one of the largest vineyard owners in Burgundy. Almost self-sufficient, Faiveley makes 80% of its wines with fruit grown in the family’s vineyards and nearly all of its Côte d’Or wines. The family’s policy of buying premium land over the span of seven generations means that Faiveley today owns vineyards in the most prestigious Crus: Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Mazis-Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Latricières-Chambertin, Musigny, Echézeaux and Clos Vougeot – the jewels of Burgundy – producing rare and precious wines.

Faiveley now owns a total of 125 hectares including 30 hectares in Côte de Nuits, 15 hectares in Côte de Beaune and 75 hectares in Côte Chalonnaise. These vineyard holdings include 10 Grand Crus and 20 Premier Crus spread over 16 villages. In the Côte Chalonnaise, Faiveley owns one of the largest Domaines in Mercurey. Their wines are classic Burgundies with wonderful longevity, aromatics and a unique, elegant style.
