Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: Clos de l'Ecu was acquired in 2003 and is a monopole of Domaine Faiveley. The 5+ acre "Clos" or walled vineyard sits high on the hillside overlooking 1er Crus Les Bressandes, Les FEves and Les Perrieres and the village of Beaune to the east. Soils are shallow, loose and laiden with gravel.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.
Score: 94 PointsWine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson
Fresh and succulent, with a texture enfolding the strawberry, cherry, spice and tobacco flavors. This is silky and refined despite the firm tannins girding the finish. Shows fine balance and a long aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2030.
