excellence in the Côte chalonnaise
The Faiveley family has been present in the Côte chalonnaise for 4 generations and has owned land in Mercurey since 1963, the year in which Guy Faiveley purchased the first vine parcels here.
La Framboisière, excellence in the Côte chalonnaise
It was in Mercurey in 1933 that the love story between the Faiveley family and the Côte chalonnaise began when Georges Faiveley, won over by the charms and richness of the region's wines, decided to rent some land here.
Thirty years later, in 1963, his son Guy purchased the family's first vine parcels.
Over the years, Domaine Faiveley has grown to acquire new vine parcels in Rully, Givry and Montagny. The Domaine's Côte Chalonnaise vines now cover 72 hectares and include three outstanding Premiers Crus: Mercurey Premier Cru 'Le Clos du Roy', Mercurey Premier Cru 'Clos des Myglands' Monopole and Montagny Premier Cru 'Les Las'. The Domaine also has the privilege of owning three monopoles including the iconic Mercurey 'La Framboisière'.
The Mercurey vat house is situated in a building that dates back two centuries. These historical premises were fully restored and renovated in 2014 and equipped with state of the art facilities. Everything has been designed with the objective of allowing the grapes grown in these climats to be vinified with the utmost rigour and precision.
The resulting wines are intense, dense and fruity and reflect the signature style of outstanding Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the Côte chalonnaise.
'Our ambition is to make our domaine a reference point in the Côte Chalonnaise by offering pure, rich and accessible wines that reflect the diversity and character of their terroirs.'
