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 purchased this plot of just over 1/2 acre in 2007. The 1er Cru Champs Fulliots vineyard sits in the heart of Monthelie's 1er Crus sharing a very similar terroir to the 1er Cru vineyards of Les Caillerets and Clos de Chenes which it directly borders. Exposure is to the south and soils an extremely shallow red clay lying directly above solid rock.
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. The young wines are aged in 30% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

This red is balanced, open and enjoyable now, showing plenty of ripe cherry flavors, with touches of earth and spice. Drink now through 2020.
