Domaine Faiveley has always paid special attention to the work in the vineyards. Throughout the year, the vineyards are cultivated carefully and thoroughly (processed). Appreciate every step, from the selection of the appropriate soil for vines. Trimming branches in winter, cutting unnecessary shoots in the spring and summer green harvest is a key step to achieve excellent maturity and produce high-quality grapes.
Yields are usually in September. When the grapes reaches its ideal maturity, grape pickers collect the entire crop by hand for 10 days. Grapes in small boxes are delivered to the winery. There ligament is placed on a conveyor belt and taken a bunch of grapes, to leave only the best. Followed by a long fermentation at low temperatures in wooden casks or barrels made of stainless steel. Typically, in casks punched hole covers, which gives the possibility of obtaining special color, tannins and all combinations of aromatic contained in the grape skins. After that, use a vertical press, which was selected for the accuracy and sensitivity of pressing: thanks to him, produced a very pure grape juice of the highest quality. Mature wine in oak barrels in the wine cellars of the XIX century, which provide ideal conditions for prolonged exposure. Then the best wine from the barrels manually poured into bottles without filtering, which gives the taste concentration and saturation.
