A great example from the world's most famous Chardonnay zone. The stony mineral-rich soils of Puligny-Montrachet's Folatieres vineyard give Faiveley's Premier Cru much of the classic Grand Cru character. Subtle opulence and ripeness is coupled with concentration and mineral freshness, the balance enriched further by a sophisticated use of new oak (30%). From master Negociants, the Faiveley Folatieres will lastwell but deliver lots of pleasure without too long a wait.

Its Origins

Domaine Faiveley is one of the biggest domaines (115ha) in Burgundy and, many would argue, one of the best. This illustrious company has been based in Nuits St Georges since the days of Pierre Faiveley who founded the business in 1825. His son Joseph gave his name to the family business, to be followed by the first François, Georges who was instrumental in founding the Chevaliers du Tastevin, Guy who developed the business in the Côte Chalonnaise, François who has recently retired and now his son Erwan, born in 1979. The change of generation, enhanced by the arrival of Bernard Hervet as Managing Director, is clear warning of the intention to dynamise the business. Already there has been a notable expansion of vineyards under Faiveley’s control. Many of Faiveley's top wines are hand bottled with no filtration. This in turn results in clean, opulent wines that often show Pinot Noir at its best. Their concentration and richness are rarely equalled.

What The Critics Say

JancisRobinson.com, Julia Harding MW (2014 vintage)

"Plenty of oak aroma for now but there’s lemon and pear fruit underneath. The oak has given a really noticeable sweetness on the palate, but it is counteracted by very crisp acidity. (JH)."
