Crafting Wines with Terroir Excellence

From harvesting right through to bottling, the grapes, the musts, and then the wines are handled carefully and precisely to ensure that each wine reveals the unique characteristics of its terroir. Erwan Faiveley, the visionary behind Domaine Faiveley, expresses his desire to enhance the extraordinary mosaic of Burgundian terroirs in every wine produced.

'For each and every one of our wines, my wish is to enhance this extraordinary mosaic of Burgundian terroirs.' - Erwan Faiveley

The Vinification Process

Every step of the vinification process at Domaine Faiveley combines traditional methods with cutting-edge procedures and facilities. Jérôme Flous, the Domaine's Chief Winemaker, carefully observes the ripeness levels in the grapes to determine the optimum date for harvest. Under the supervision of their dedicated vineyard workers, a team of pickers collects the grapes at their peak ripeness.

The grapes are handled with extreme care, being cut by hand and immediately transported to the Domaine. Manual sorting ensures that only the finest clusters make it to the vat house, where they are transferred to wooden vats using a gravity system.

They meticulously consider the ideal proportions of de-stemming and whole clusters for each appellation and vintage. Through the traditional process of 'pumping over,' we extract the quintessence of colour, tannins, and aromas from the grape skins. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, the grapes are slowly and gently pressed, yielding an intense and incredibly pure juice.

Aging in French Oak Barrels

At Domaine Faiveley, the wines age in French oak barrels for 12 to 18 months in our hygrometry-controlled cellars. These cellars provide natural and consistent temperatures, allowing time to work its magic. The carefully selected Burgundian barrels, chosen for their grain and moderate toast, transform the juices into exquisite nectars.

The Unique Treasure: Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley

The Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley is the flagship Monopole vineyard of their family Domaine, representing a unique treasure within Burgundy's Grands Crus. Unlike other vineyards, you won't find it on a map. It is a part of the Le Rognet et Corton lieu-dit.

On the 3rd of March 1874, Joseph Faiveley acquired a 3-hectare Monopole parcel known as the 'Clos des Cortons.' It was sold under this name until 1929 when the President of the Syndicat de Corton raised concerns about its use. In 1930, the Dijon Court of First Instance ruled that the name 'Clos des Cortons' must be followed by the name 'Faiveley' to avoid confusion with other Corton parcels. The Civil Division of the Court of Cassation officially approved the name 'Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley' on the 23rd of November 1937. This name carries a judicial decision of legal and obligatory nature, rather than being a mere commercial brand.

Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley - A Flagship Wine

The Corton Grand Cru 'Clos des Cortons Faiveley' Monopole is a full-bodied and concentrated wine, proudly serving as the flagship of the Domaine. It exhibits excellent potential for bottle aging and entices wine enthusiasts with its strength, elegance, and aromatic persistency.
