Domaine Faiveley - Cote de Beaune Villages 2010Red Fruit Aromas
This wine exudes nice fresh red-fruit aromas.
It has a good full attack on the palate with tannins expressing themselves and participating in the interesting structure of this wine.
The whole is young and fruity and pleasant to taste already.
The Cote-de-Beaune is stretched out over a 26km strip from Ladoix-Serrigny to Maranges crossing some of the most famous villages in Burgundy: Aloxe-Corton, Pommard, Meursault, Its vineyards lie on the best exposed hillsides and plateaus.
The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration first before being vinified. For the duration of the 15-18 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature.
It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The barrels, which come from high-quality barrel makers, have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.
