Allen Meadows 94-91
"This is, quite surprisingly, more robust than the Mazis with more mineral nuances and simply unbelievable purity and length. It's as though the flavors were extracted from liquid rock with its dramatic flavor authority yet and this really makes a statement while remaining in perfect balance. I marginally prefer the Mazis but this is a question of taste, not quality."

Domaine Faiveley

View all from Domaine Faiveley
In 1825, Pierre Faiveley founded the firm that now bears the name Domaine Faiveley. At that time, the firm was a classic négociant, buying and selling wine. But from generation to generation, with a strong commitment to the quality of Burgundy's patrimony, the Faiveley family has purchased vineyards and is today among the largest owners of classified vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. On October 15, 2013, in a surprise announcement, Domaine Faiveley reported it had acquired 20 hectares of vines previously owned by Domaine Dupont-Tisserandot, which is based in Gevrey-Chambertin. All together, the firm now presently owns 123 hectares of vineyards among which 12 hectares are grands crus and 27, premiers crus.

The objective of the family today, led by Erwan Faiveley, is to increase the firm's holdings of great vineyards so that there can be complete control from vine to bottle across the entire range of wines. Along with this focus, Erwan Faiveley and General Manager Bernard Hervet have renovated the cellars, which now boast state-of-the-art barrel presses, custom-designed wooden vats and among the finest, air-cured oak casks available in the world.

Unlike many wine growers, Domaine Faiveley has united the management of its vineyards and its cellar under the direction of one technical director, Jerome Flous. The result is seamless integration of the wines. Domaine Faiveley wines are widely recognized for being among the finest produced in Burgundy and Domaine Faiveley among the finest wine producers in the world.
