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.

This is lush and mouthfilling, boasting butterscotch, peach, lemon pie and sweet baking spice flavors. Harmonious and approachable now, yet should evolve over the short term. Drink now through 2020.
