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: Faiveley sources their village level Puligny Montrachet from many parcels throughout the appellation. Their goal is to source from varying terroirs to produce the most consistent and well structured wine.
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 2/3 new and 1/3 used oak barrels.

This is ripe and buttery, with peach, apple and spice flavors suspended between the generous texture and fine structure. Offers fine, spicy length. Drink now through 2020.
"(malo 50% finished): Pungent floral lift to the white stone fruit aromas, along with a minty malic note. Dense, spicy and sweet but conveys a lovely light touch for 2014 Meursault. Nicely balanced, fresh, floral wine with subtle length. Production here was cut significantly by hail."
