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: Les Pruliers is one of the larger 1er Cru's within the village of Nuits-St-Georges. The vineyard sits mid-hillside just to the south of the village, bordering Les Proces to the north and Ronciere to the south. Domaine Faiveley owns a single plot on the south, lower portion. Vines go back 50 years and are planted in a dark organic, gravely soil.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

Enticing flavors of smoky black cherry, blackberry and violet are the hallmarks of this suave red. Picks up spice accents as the firm structure asserts itself. Best from 2020 through 2035.
