Faiveley Lunch Offer 2019

Domaine Faiveley is one of the biggest domaines (115ha) in Burgundy and, many would argue, one of the best.

The change of generation, enhanced by the arrival of Bernard Hervet as Managing Director, is clear warning of the intention to dynamise the business. The most obvious change though is in the barrel cellar where the previous supplier has been dropped and replaced with Francois Frères, Taransaud and three other coopers.  Old style Faiveley wines could be massively tannic at the expense of the fruit. From 2007 the wines are much fresher and fruitier, yet still with real intensity.

Many of Faiveley’s top wines are hand bottled with no filtration. This in turn results in clean, opulent wines that often show Pinot Noir at its best. Their concentration and richness are rarely equalled. JASPER MORRIS MW

Faiveley is a powerhouse producer in the Cote d’Or. Their extensive holdings and access to such a diverse array of communes and climats gives them a unique understanding of the region and provides them with the raw material required to produce some of the finest wines from Burgundy. This storied address has reliably produced as many top flight wines as anyone of their contemporaries. Today the wines sit in a unique spot in the tapestry of the Cote as the quality has never been better but the prices remain, comparatively, reasonable. If anything Faiveley has only reaffirmed their position as one of the top estates in the region over recent years.

We are extremely excited to be hosting Carl-Stephane Cercellier, Faiveley’s export manager here to talk us through the new releases from this hallowed estate in what should be an enlightening lunch.
