This wine, which has a generous and complex nose, divulges rich aromas of roasting and spices. On the palate, it opens with ripe and silky tannins, before showing its strength and its beautiful structure.
In the Middle Ages, people would call this plot 216;Petite Merveille’ (Little Marvel), the wines producedthere being of such quality….. Although no-one really knows when this clos or walled vineyardwas created, we know that it already existed in 1508.

|Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Historically based in the Cote de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climats in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited.
Faiveley exploits more than 10 hectares of Grand Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climats that are exclusively owned by the family – these are the monopoles - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu,… and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru.
