Lovers of French reds have a new reason to celebrate. Our beloved Domaine Faiveley Pinot Noir is BACK, available now for instant delivery in Hong Kong in both regular 0.75l (HK$ 200) and magnum 1.5l (HK$ 450) bottles. It’s a beautiful, ruby hued wine with a nose and palate of fresh red fruits; bold and rich with fine, robust tannins. Just as a Pinot Noir should be.
Aged in both vats and French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months in cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges, this bottle comes from Domaine Faiveley in Burgundy, one of the most well known regions in the world of French wine. This is the historical home of Pinot Noir grapes – basically, it’s a terroir that is ideal for bringing out the best in them.
Domaine Faiveley itself is also worth spending a little time on. Over time the people have changed, but the values of the winery, now in its seventh (seventh!) generation, have stayed the same. Those values are respect for their vineyards and a strong belief that, simply, a great wine is born from great grapes.
Since its founding in 1825, the Faiveley family has devoted most of its resources to acquiring the best vineyards in the finest climates in Burgundy : Gevrey-Chambertin, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Mercurey among others. The vineyards are fragmented with an average surface area of just one hectare per appellation, which is low; that means that the number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore particularly limited and exclusive.
