Founded by Joseph Faiveley in 1825 as a Nuits-Saint-Georges négociant, and actively producing wines for nearly 200 years, Domaine Faiveley has earned the reputation of being one of the most esteemed domaines in Burgundy. It has also evolved to become the largest holder of classified vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, the Côte de Beaune, and Côtes Chalonnaise. Featuring grand cru and premier cru vineyards (including several monopoles), Faiveley’s stature is not only felt in France but around the world. The domaine is currently led by Erwin Faiveley, a seventh-generation winemaker. Seeking to expand the domaine’s influence, more properties are being explored for acquisition to maintain quality control. At present, the domaine holds 285 acres of vineyards in such sought-after locations as in Gevrey-Chambertin, Bâtard-Montrachet, Volnay and Pommard. Domaine Faiveley combines tradition with a bit of innovation when it comes to winemaking. This is evident in its use of modern barrel presses custom wood vats. The aging process is somewhat protracted, as the domaine believes that is what’s required to produce the characteristic depth of flavor so crucial to its style and caliber of wines. Last, the wines are hand-bottled with no filtration, yielding a clean, luxurious, rich and masterful wine.
