Blagny 1er Cru La Piece sous le Bois 2015

Domaine Faiveley

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: The tiny hamlet of Blagny is situated high on the hillside between the appellations of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault. White wines produced here are labeled Meursault or Puligny but the red wines are labeled under the Blagny AOC. The 1er Cru La Piece sous le Bois or "vines below the woods" sits above the Meursault 1er Crus; Perrieres and Genevrieres. This 27 acre vineyard has an exposure to the east and soils made up of loose white marls and red clay. Domaine Faiveley produces this wine from a 1.38 acre portion of the vineyard.

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.

    A lean yet juicy wild berry and mineral-infused red, boasting a firm, chalky structure. Sinewy, with fine complexity, intensity and length, revealing a bitter cherry finish. Best from 2019 through 2032.

    This wine is rounded, rich and full of ripe fruit. Its wood flavors, giving spice and vanilla, are a backdrop to the generous apricot and pear flavors and good acidity. Drink this wine from 2022.
