Founded in 1825 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Maison J. Faiveley has expanded over seven generations to include prestigious Crus from Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, as well as the most renowned appellations of Côte Chalonnaise, such as Mercurey. Today, Domaine Faiveley owns more than 120 hectares (296 acres), including seven appellations in their entirety (monopoles) – more than any other domaine in Burgundy. These vineyard holdings include eight Grand Crus and 16 Premier Crus spread over 15 Villages. Eighty percent of Faiveley wines come from family-owned vineyards; the balance from long-term contracts.
In December 2004, Erwan Faiveley took over the reins from his father, François, at the age of 25. This might seem young, but it is not without precedent, as Erwan’s grandfather Guy handed the Domaine off to François in 1976 when the latter was about the same age. Join us as we talk with the very personable Erwan Faiveley about the region and its wines, and the skill and passion it takes to run the largest family Domaine in Burgundy.
