Cellar/Tasting Notes
The highly acclaimed, Domaine Faiveley, prides itself with balancing the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions practiced for centuries within their cellars. Each terroir as well as each vintage receives special attention and this contributes to faithful representation of its terroir.

Clos de l'Ecu was acquired in 2003 and is a monopole of Domaine Faiveley. The 5+ acre "Clos" or walled vineyard sits high on the hillside overlooking 1er Crus Les Bressandes, Les Feves and Les Perrieres and the village of Beaune to the east.

Erwan Faively and Bernard Hervet describe 2011 vintage as "...there is warmth to the wines in the sense that they are very satisfying to drink as they are generous and suave yet there is finesse and elegance as well..there is the color and aromatic complexity if not quite the mid-palate concentration of a great vintage."
Burghound (BH): 89-91
"Here too there is a mild application of wood on the otherwise very fresh and cool red pinot fruit and soft earth suffused nose. There is an attractive sense of energy to the nicely detailed flavors and a touch of minerality on the spicy, balanced and persistent finish. This is really quite refined as the firm but fine tannins are well integrated on the long finish where the wood resurfaces."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 89-91
"Good bright medium red. Cherry, raspberry, licorice, menthol and herbs on the pungent nose. Supple and sweet on the palate, with a smooth texture to the perfumed red fruit flavors. Finishes with firm-edged tannins and very good peppery lift. A very stylish Beaune wine in the making."
