Faiveley use three picking teams. Two started in the white wine vineyards on 28th September and were finished in four days. Then it was all hands to the red grapes. In general the harvest came in healthily, the hard work all year round in the vineyards paying dividends. We were once again very impressed.

Faiveley are the talk of Burgundy at the moment, a change of generation with Erwan Faiveley now in charge has resulted in a change of style since 2007 (the old style was often very tannic). I have to say I love the new style and the famous Gevrey Premier Cru vineyard of Cazetiers epitomises it. Beautiful lifted nose, with red cherry and some bramble fruits. The palate is seamless, seductive almost, with the same red fruits showing and a lovely pepper spice finish. Burgundy of the very highest order. Matthew Tipping - Fine Wine Sales Manager
Several parcels with vines of different ages add to the complexity of this superb Cuvée. It has a darker centre of cherry fruit and the blend of older and younger vines is very interesting. Jasper Morris MW - Burgundy Director
The resurgence begun by the trio of Erwan Faiveley, Bernard Hervé and winemaker Jérôme Flous, who arrived in 2007, is very apparent in this brilliant series of 2011 wines. They began the harvest on 31 August and picked for 9 days. There are some new wines this year from a contract for the whole production of an estate in Chambolle-Musigny and the Faiveley white wines from totally healthy grapes are particularly successful in 2011, perhaps the best we have seen from the new regime.
The last few vintages have shown a freshening up of the Sérafin style, though absolutely not at the expense of the concentration which is a hallmark of this domaine. The concentration of the fruit comes from their meticulous work in the vineyards, the fresher style from a little less extraction during fermentation. Christian himself thinks that 2010 is notably more concentrated than 2009 and as everywhere else, yields are down this year.
2010 is year three of the ‘new’ Faiveley style and they have again delivered an excellent set of wines. They picked from 20th September to 29th, beginning with Côte d’Or whites. The new regime has concentrated on an overhaul of winemaking principles, leading to a refinement of style. Next up will be a renovation of their Côte Chalonnaise cellars. They have also been expanding significantly into the Côte de Beaune, especially for white wines.
