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 14 to 16 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 dark ruby colour. The expressive and complex nose has aromas of red fruits with woody notes. We find these same aromas on the palate which are well enveloped by delicately blended tannins.    
This Gevrey Chambertin is perfectly balanced and reflects all the elegance of Pinot Noir beautifully.

Suggestions

Serve with: White Meats

This Gevrey-Chambertin 2007 is a very intense dark ruby, almost black colour. Its nose is deep in red and black fruit aromas, with a hint of fresh tobacco. The mid-palate is powerful thanks to the tannins, which are present but already blended. The finish lingers on with almost sugary fudge tastes. 

Tasting Date : February 2009

Press Notes

Wine spectator: 92/100

With a fruity, woody nose, and cherries and spices on the palate, this Gevrey-Chambertin 2006 makes full use of all the Pinot Noir aromas.  It is round, expressive and of fine length.   This is a very good vintage for this appellation.

Tasting Date : May 2009
