Winemaker's Notes:

Glittering light yellow with green reflections. Aromas that are very agreeable and expressive present scents of white flowers, lime blossom, vanilla, and toffee. The attack is fresh and generous; balanced presentation of well-integrated wood in the mouth offers lovely fullness and an organoleptic persistence that is exceptional for a Bourgogne Blanc.

Serve with fish terrine, fish en papillotes or white meats.

"Astoundingly rich, ripe nose given the price; scents of luscious peach, baked banana and butter. Beautifully textured flavors of stone fruit and lots of butter. Caramel in the finish."

About Domaine Faiveley:

Founded in 1825, Bourgognes Faiveley has been handed down from father to son for over 175 years. As the sixth generation to take the reins, François Faiveley manages, with equal amounts passion and competence, the largest family domaine in Burgundy. Methodically reconstructing vineyards fractured by French inheritance laws, Bourgognes Faiveley today owns more appellations in their entirety (monopoles) than any other domaine in Burgundy.

"Faiveley’s wines are... supremely clean and elegant: definitive examples of Pinot Noir... above all they have richness and breed, the thumbprint of a master winemaker."
