Description:
This vineyard neighbours that of La Framboisiere which produces powerful red wines. In the Clos Rochette, the soil is particularly compact and hard to work, being strewn with little rocks, hence the name. Rich and complex white wines are produced here.

To maintain all the freshness and quality of the grapes, they are pressed and vinifed on site in Mercurey. The wine is then brought to Nuits-Saint-Georges to be matured.
Only a small part of the cuvee is raised in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months, which allows the wine to acquire delicate woody notes without masking the liveliness and the character sought after in the Cote Chalonnaise white wines.

This wine has beautiful complex aromas. It is very expressive on the nose with scents of white flowers and spices. There is a wonderful liveliness on the palate to begin with, which is slightly attenuated by the roundness and smoothness from being raised in oak. The mix of tastes works harmoniously to give us a wine of great delicacy.

Producer Information

Domaine Burgundy since 1825.
For more than 180 years the love of wine has been passed on from one Faiveley generation to the next. The Domaine has always remained in the same family and always completely independent. Today Erwan Faiveley is one of the youngest directors of a Burgundy Domaine on record. Erwan is keen to respect the traditions and savoir-faire of the Faiveley family, while paying great attention to the professionals around him, as his vision for the future begins to take shape.
Domaine Faiveley is one of the largest vineyard owners in Burgundy. Almost selfsufficient, Faiveley makes 80 percent of its wines with fruit grown in the family's vineyards and nearly all of its Cote d'Or wines. The family's policy of buying premium land over the span of seven generations means that Faiveley today owns vineyards in the most prestigious Crus: Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Mazis- Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Beze, Latricieres-Chambertin, Musigny, Echezeaux and Clos Vougeot - the jewels of Burgundy - producing rare and precious wines.
Faiveley owns a total of 120 hectares including 30 hectares in Cote de Nuits, 10 in Cote de Beaune and 75 in Cote Chalonnaise. These vineyard holdings include eight Grand Crus and 16 Premier Crus spread over 15 Villages. In the Cote Chalonnaise Faiveley owns the largest Domaine in Mercurey and still has 20 hectares of potential vineyards awaiting cultivation permits.
