Domaine Faiveley Beaune 1er Cru 2008 "Clos de l'Ecu" Monopole
Faiveley is an independent, family owned domaine which was founded in Nuits St Georges in 1825. It is currently run by the founder’s great-great-great-great grandson Erwan Faiveley, who has taken over from his father François. Erwan represents the seventh generation of the Faiveley family. The appellation ‘Clos de l’Ecu’ most probably comes from the Middle Ages: this "Clos" or walled vineyard, allowed the owners to pay the taxes they owed the Dukes of Burgundy, in the unit of currency of the time - the ‘Ecu’. This monopole (or single-estate), 5+ acre vineyard of Domaine Faiveley, was acquired in 2003. It sits high on the hillside overlooking 1er Crus Les Bressandes, Les Feves and Les Perrieres and the village of Beaune to the east. Soils are shallow, loose and laiden with gravel.
