Description

Domaine Faiveley is one of the largest vineyard owners in Burgundy. Almost self-sufficient, Faiveley makes 80% of its wines with fruit grown in the family’s vineyards and nearly all of its Côte d’Or wines. The family’s policy of buying premium land over the span of seven generations means that Faiveley today owns vineyards in the most prestigious Crus: Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Mazis-Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Latricières-Chambertin, Musigny, Echézeaux and Clos Vougeot – the jewels of Burgundy – producing rare and precious wines.

Faiveley now owns a total of 125 hectares including 30 hectares in Côte de Nuits, 15 hectares in Côte de Beaune and 75 hectares in Côte Chalonnaise. These vineyard holdings include 10 Grand Crus and 20 Premier Crus spread over 16 villages. In the Côte Chalonnaise, Faiveley owns one of the largest Domaines in Mercurey.

Located in the village of Meursault, just above the plot Sous le Dos d’Âne. ‘La pièce’ designates a patch or a plot of vines, situated in this case, below the wood ‘sous le bois’, of Blagny.
