The week in pictures: Hong Kong

Erwan Faiveley of Burgundy’s famed Domaine Faiveley was in Hong Kong hosting a media luncheon organised by its local importer Altaya. While speaking to the media, Faiveley who has been at the helm of his family estate for 13 years, eloquently summed up the relationship between vinification and terroir, saying that time tends to polish the tannins and emerge the terroir, meaning that whatever the vinification was, after 10 or 20 years the vinification fades and what’s left in the glass is the terroir. The domaine is one of the largest grand cru site holders in Burgundy with 10 ha out of 25 ha in total.
