  • About this winery

    Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of...

  • Tasting notes

    Intense ruby red colour and an attractive nose offering fresh red fruits, sweet spice, oaky notes and a touch of smoke. The palate is smooth and persistent with fruity, oaky notes that linger on the finish. A remarkably elegant wine with silky smooth tannins and a very distinctive finish.

  • Viticultural notes

    During the construction of the Château de Gevrey-Chambertin, the monks of Cluny would gather in the valley after a hard day of labouring the vineyards. The soils in this parcel are the same as in "Les Cazetiers" although the parcel is located slightly higher up. This truly is a remarkable terroir.

  • Winemaking notes

    The grapes were harvested and sorted by hand. The wines were punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation was complete. The free-run wine was run off using a gravity system whilst the marc was pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press wine. The wines were aged for 16 months in French oak barrels (40-50% new oak and 50-60% one-wine barrels) which were selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines were then left to age in hygrometry-controlled cellars at consistent, natural temperatures.

    A north-east facing site that’s one of the cooler spots in Gevrey, La Combe aux Moines often makes very fine, subtle wines. This is a case in point: pepper spice, sappy tannins, lots of red berry perfume and crunchy, minerally freshness.

    Red A pure, cherry- and raspberry-flavored red, accented by smoke, spice and mineral notes. Shows a black pepper side as the flavors play out on the aftertaste.

    Bright red-ruby. Licorice pastille, black cherry and violet on the nose. Very sweet, fat and powerful, but a little chunky following the examples from Chambolle-Musigny, and less complex. But this firmly tannic wine is more powerful and concentrated.

    Strong reduction dominates the nose at present. There is brilliantly good delineation, indeed the medium weight flavors could aptly be described as chiseled, along with a lovely sense of underlying tension to the more mineral-inflected finale that possesses strikingly good persistence. This impeccably well-balanced effort is a classic Chambolle of grace and lace.
