Description

""There have been a number of changes at Domaine Faiveley, mostly driven by former managing director of Bouchard Père et Fils, and now chief operating officer for Faiveley, M. Bernard Hervet. These changes included a complete revamping of oak sources and barrel making, equipment upgrades with the goal of eliminating coarse tannins, the purchase of wooden fermenters, experiments with whole cluster fermentation, reduction in the amount of new wood and the purchase of several new vineyards. In addition there have been further changes in terms of how the fruit is delivered to the fermenters as now there are virtually no berries broken, which prevents any undue oxidation as well as delays the start of the fermentation. "We noticed almost immediately that the fermentations were slower to start and, interestingly, lasted longer." There was also the purchase of another state-of-the-art press. We found that with only one such press we had more delays than we thought ideal so we invested the considerable funds to purchase another. It is both remarkable, and laudable, that a respected domaine like Faiveley is pushing as hard as it is to constantly push quality ever higher. - Burghound"
