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: Another of Domaine Faiveley's famed monopoles, 1er Cru Clos de Myglands (mee-glaund) is a 14 acre parcel located north of the village of Mercurey and adjacent to Faiveley's lieu-dit La Framboisiere. Vines here date back to 1961 and are planted in a mixture of clay and limestone soils.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, sorted and pressed on site in Mercurey. Following vinification the young wines are brought to the domaine cellars in Nuits-St-Georges for aging. The wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak for 12 to 14 months prior to release. Approximately 1/3 of the oak is first use.

Wonderful aromas of plums, orange peel and stones. Full-bodied, round and soft with a juicy finish. A deep and rich pinot. Fantastic wine. Made from six hectares. Best ever? Drink now.
A ripe and attractively fresh nose features notes of violet, plum, earth and dark currant. There is both good detail and energy to the sleekly textured middle weight flavors that deliver solid length on the balanced finish that displays only a touch of rusticity.
Bright, dark red. Spicy, high-pitched aromas and flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and orange zest. Juicy and intense, showing moderate fleshiness and a light touch. The clay and limestone soil here includes an iron component.
