Domaine Faiveley Wine runs deep in the Faiveley family's blood. Its values have remained unchanged over the last seven generations and are based on a deep attachment to the Bourgogne region, an instinctive passion for the terroirs and an innate respect for provenance.

Based in Nuits-St-Georges, the famous Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825 and in more recent times, the domaine has greatly expanded its vineyards across the entire Côte d'Or. The grapes are entirely destemmed and fermented in a mix of new wooden vats for the top end wines and stainless steel for the lesser cuvees. Once notorious for being fairly austere, there has been less emphasis on extraction over the last ten years and the wines show increased freshness, purity of fruit and more judicious use of oak. A contender for one of the most improved domaines in Burgundy over the last decade.

This charming Grand Cru is situated on the most northern part of the hillside, in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. The production areas for the Charmes-Chambertin and Mazoyères-Chambertin appellations are the same and it is the Charmes-Chambertin appellation that is usually specified. Exposition East Soil Brown soils with around 40% clay content, lava and iron.

Charmes-Chambertin reveals an attractive deep ruby red hue and rich nose disclosing a variety of small red fruits, spice and flowers. This indulgent yet very elegant wine offers silky smooth tannins although it requires a few years in the bottle before it reaches its full potential.
