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: Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin AC is sourced from multiple parcels spread throughout the appellation. Soils are made up primarily of clay and 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 tasting and a blending of the cuvees. The young wine is aged in 30% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

Sweet berry and cherry flavors are front and center, while spice and light vegetal accents flit around the edges of this taut red. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2026.
