”We are delighted and most proud of this recent acquisition”, said Erwan Faiveley, seventh generation owner of Nuits-Saint-Georges-based Domaine Faiveley, which already owns more than 120ha across the Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise.

As part of this development, Erwan continued, “In the great tradition of Bernard Billaud, we will continue to focus on the outstanding characteristics coming from the Kimmeridgian terroirs of Chablis, to create focused precisely vinified mineral-driven wine.”
