Characteristics

Total Surface Area: 371 ha
Exposition: East, South-East
Soil: Limestone in North Marl and Clay in South
Grape Variety: Chardonnay

Domaine Faiveley is responsible for all the work carried out in this vineyard and can therefore have total control over the quality of the grapes, as in the plots it owns. The hand-picked harvest is transported with care to our cellars in Nuits St Georges.
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 pale yellow colour.  The attractive aromas of white and yellow fruits mix with light woody notes.  On the palate, this wine meets up to the expectations of its aromas: it has a round and full attack before the vanillary and toasty tastes reveal themselves. Good long-lasting aromas. The finish is slightly acid.

Suggestions

Serve at: 10°C to 12°C
Serve with: White Meats, Fish in a sauce, Turbot or Shellfish ‘Armoricaine’ style
Cellaring Potential: 3 to 6 years

The 2008 vintage gives us a light gold Meursault with a typical nose for its appellation. These aromas of quince, ripe peach, and grilled notes are also found on the palate, where the wine is rich and round. It's a balanced wine with beautifully long aromas and very representative of Meursault.

Tasting Date : May 2010

The powerful nose expresses scents of white fruits, exotic fruits, and fudge. The attack on the palate is bold and decisive - very pure. The mid-palate is round and full with aromas of toast and vanilla, and white peach from the nose. The finish is tense and long. It's a fine Meursault which is typical of its appellation and vintage.

Press Notes

Guide Bettane et Desseauve: 15,5/20

The 2006 vintage gives us a very pale yellow Meursault with green tints. The full and round attack follows a fruity nose  with aromas of yellow and white fruits and woody citrus notes. Very nice vanilla and toast scents evolve on the palate. This is a balanced and very harmonious wine.
