DOMAINE FAIVELEY 2012

This exceptional Grand Cru wine comes off a 1.287 ha parcel of the famous 50.12 ha walled “Clos de Vougeot” vineyard in the commune of Vougeot. This vineyard dates back to 1336 when the Monks of Cîteaux created the Clos. The vineyard has an east to south-easterly aspect with shallow soils. Grapes are hand harvested and undergo a short pre-fermentation maceration before being fermented in large wooden vats. After three week fermentation, the wine is gently pressed using a vertical press before being matured in up to 70% fine-grained new French oak barrels for 16-18 months.
