The hand-picked harvest is vinified for Domaine Faiveley. Our Oenologist tastes each cuvée and only chooses the best wines from trusted producers.
The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 13 to 15 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents on average one third of the cuvée. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

Our Tasting Notes:

A brilliant light yellow colour. The nose has great finesse with mineral and light woody notes. This wine is bold, pure, concentrated and balanced on the palate with remarkable length. 
An elegant and classy white wine, which distinguishes itself by its long-lasting aromas and flavours.

Suggestions

Cellaring Potential: 5 to 7 years

This Chassagne-Montrachet has a brilliant, golden pale yellow colour. The discreet nose opens with notes of citrus and white fruits, like peach and grapefruit. This wine is rounder and more mineral on the palate, evolving towards candied fruit aromas. It's a fine wine which will seduce amateur winelovers.

The Chassagne-Montrachet 2007, which has a beautiful light and brilliant colour, opens with an expressive and very perfumed nose. The attack is bold and pure and we rediscover the aromas of dried fruits, butter, vanilla and quince already sensed on the nose. This is a round and charming wine with beautiful length. 

Tasting Date : April 2009
