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 hamlet of Blagny is located high on the hillside above Puligny Montrachet and Meursault and represents an entirely unique terroir. This 1er Cru vineyard is located directly adjacent to the 1er Cru "La Piece Sous le Bois" overlooking the vineyards of Perrieres and Puligny Champ Canet. Exposure is due east and soils are shallow marl and clay.
Vinification: Grapes are harvest by hand and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following primary fermentation the young wine is aged for 14-16 months in a combination of 1/3 new and 2/3 used oak barrels.

This charming white offers ample butter, honey, peach and pastry aromas and flavors, with stone hints, generating minerally undertones. Shows fine harmony and length. Drink now through 2024.
Reduction, wood and residual malolactic fermentation aromas presently dominate the underlying fruit though there is good freshness and verve to the intense, rich and stony medium weight flavors that offer fine length but limited depth, at least today.
(malo finished): Bright light yellow. Vibrant scents of lime zest and stone. Juicy and rather tight on the palate; not a fleshy wine but pure, aromatic and penetrating, showing lovely energy and lift to its lime and orange zest fruit. Finishes sappy and firm but a bit youthfully edgy. Erwan Faiveley noted that the yield here may have been four times as high as that of the village Meursault.
