1825, Pierre Faiveley founded the firm that now bears the name Domaine Faiveley. At that time, the firm was classic negociant, buying and selling wine. But from generation to generation, with a firm commitment to the quality of Burgundy's patrimony, the Faiveley family has purchased vineyard and is today among the largest owners of classified vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cotes Chalonnaise. All together the firm owns some 120 hectare of vineyards among which 10 hectares are grands crus and 25, premiers crus. The objective of the family today, led by Erwan Faiveley, is to increase the firm's holdings of great vineyards so that there can be complete control from vine to bottle across the entire range of wines. Along with this focus, Erwan Faiveley and General Manager Bernard Hervet have renovated the cellars which now boast state of the art barrel presses, custom designed wooden vats and among the finest, air cured oak casks available in the world. Unlike many wine growers, Domaine Faiveley has united the management of its vineyards and its cellar under the direction of one technical director, Jerome Flous. The result is seamless integration of vineyard and cellar practices with great results in the quality of the wines. Today, the wines of Domaine Faiveley are widely recognized for being among the finest produced in Burgundy and Domaine Faiveley among the finest wine producers in the world.

Here the tannins are a bit more prominent and will require a few more years of cellar time to resolve. Comments: Outstanding Issue 45
