The 15 acre premier cru Fremiets vineyard is located on the border of Pommard in the heart of the 1er Cru vineyards of Volnay. Domaine Faiveley acquired their 1.83 acre parcel in 2007. The plot runs the length of the vineyard and has an exposure facing east/ southeast. Soils are poor and composed primarily of clay and limestone which are perfect for Pinot.

BurghoundThere is excellent freshness and punch to the pure, detailed and elegant middle weight flavors that brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract on the firm, balanced and beautifully persistent finale. This succulent and stylish effort should both drink reasonably well young but also reward extended keeping. 90-93

VinousBrilliant ruby-red. Slightly minty aspect to the pungent red berry and pepper flavors. Nicely intense, sweet and chewy but not a fleshy style of Volnay. This sharply delineated but youthfully tight wine, aged in 20% new oak, finishes with a serious tannic underpinning. 89-92
