Faiveley own very grand vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, but the 70 hectares they hold in the Cote Chalonnaise remains an important element in their historic holdings, with the Clos Rochette a monopole, i.e. solely owned by the family. This site between Mercurey and neighbouring Rully was once shared between Pinot and Chardonnay, but the prevalence of white limestone argued for replacing the former with the latter. The wine is a blend of 20% fermented in new barrels and 80% in stainless steel, arguably giving the virtues of both, i.e. some clean oak accents and lively freshness.
