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 ruby-red colour of beautiful intensity. The nose unveils light woody and fruity aromas. The attack is supple and fruity. Then, the wine reveals its fine and pleasant tannins, which give it remarkable balance and nice volume.  
This Vosne-Romanée is elegant and has good length on the palate.

The 2008 vintage gives us a ruby wine with a nice woody nose and aromas of ripe fleshy fruits.   The acidic attack gives way quickly to a wine which is powerful on the palate, with very ripe tannins.  With fine balance and lots of finesse, this Vosne-Romanée has good ageing potential.

The fruity nose opens with cherry liqueur and strawberry aromas.  This wine is fresh and balanced on the palate, where we find the fruity notes from the nose.  This Vosne-Romanée proves to have very nice volume and a finish showing finesse and elegance. 

Tasting Date : May 2009

This Vosne-Romanée 2006 is intriguing. The peppery, raspberry and wild strawberry notes make the nose complex and very pleasant.   The attack is rich and the wine is fleshy on the palate.  We find the red berries from the nose once again here,  harmoniously framed by the tannins.   The slightly menthol finish is full of finesse and elegance.
