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: Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot sits on the lower slope within the village of Vosne-Romanee directly below the Grand Cru's of Le Musigny and Grands Echezeaux. One of the largest of Grand Crus; the 123+ acres are heavily fragmented, Domaine Faiveley owns 3.18 acres spread across multiple parcels.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short 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 16 to 18 months.

A velvety and opulent red, boasting flavors of black cherry, raspberry, currant and spice. This is elegant, showing finesse and beautiful harmony, backed by a deftly integrated structure and discreet oak. Exhibits fine length, with lingering fruit and spice details. Best from 2019 through 2033.
"There is enough reduction present to suppress the underlying fruit. On the plus side there is a lovely sense of tension to the very fresh, focused and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that possess both first-class volume and precision, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and explosively long finale. The tannins are relatively fine-grained for the appellation but note well that this is a take-no-prisoners example and as such it would be pointless to open a bottle before its 10th birthday."
Full ruby-red. Deep black cherry aroma conveys a chocolatey ripeness. A very sweet Clos Vougeot in a powerful, deep style, offering rich, fruit-driven flavors of black cherry and black raspberry. Fine-grained tannins dust the teeth. Impressively fat, ripe Clos Vougeot if a bit chunky for grand cru.
