When we talk about Burgundy, Domaine Faiveley is one of the very best addresses. This is a large family business with approximately 120 hectares of vineyards, including famous names such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Chablis Grand Cru.

However, it is also a family winery with 10 hectares of Grand cru and almost 25 hectares of Premier cru. The first step was taken in 1825 by Pierre Faiveley; his son Joseph turned the winery into a great top company and his wines became ambassadors of Burgundy wines all over the world. With a clear, elegant and striking style, wines are produced here without any exception that meet the ideal image of Burgundy. “A winery of very high quality, which represents the full glory of French viticulture,” writes the famous wine author duo Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve in France.

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time-honored traditions practiced for centuries in their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage benefits from special attention that makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes a faithful reflection of its terroir.

The village of Puligny-Montrachet is located between the well-known appellations Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet. This region has exceptional terroirs where Chardonnay is perfectly expressed. Although wine was already being grown here in the 12th century, the name of the Montrachet vineyard was not added to the village name Puligny until 1879. This wine region mainly produces white wines from Chardonnay.

The area "Champ Gain" covers 10 hectares and is located just below the Premier Cru vineyard "La Garenne", on the highest part of the hill. The name of this plot means "Land reclamation from the forest" and as the name already suggests , there used to be a forest on this piece of land before vines were planted. The vineyard has been under the ownership of Domaine Faiveley since 2014.

The Faiveley Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Gain has a very aromatic bouquet with citrus, passion fruit and pineapple. Supplemented with subtle notes of toast. The taste is full and rich and has an excellent balance. A beautiful wine with a tight mineral aftertaste full of aromas.
