- Founded 7 generations and nearly 200 years ago, Faiveley is still truly a domaine, with over 80% of their wines coming from family-owned vineyards. The grapes for their negociant Joseph Faiveley line are purchased from long term contracts, then produced at the winery alongside their estate wines. Their Chambolle-Musigny, aged for 14-16 months in lightly toasted barrels, is fleshy and charmingly supple.
