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 Domaine Faiveley Chambolle Musigny AC is sourced from multiple plots throughout the Chambolle Musigny appellation. Soils are stony and rich in limestone and exposures tend to be east/ southeast.
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 followed by blending of the cuvees. The young wines are aged in 30% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

Aromas of blueberries, stones and flowers follow through to a full to medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Bright and beautiful. Love the steely undertone. Drink or hold.
