Erwan Faiveley is the seventh generation of his family to lead Domaine Faiveley; one of Burgundy’s great estates. The 36-year-old took over the running of the domaine from his father aged just 25. Founded as a négociant in 1825, today Domaine Faiveley owns over 10 hectares of grand cru vineyards and nearly 25 hectares of premier cru land in Burgundy, including Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts; Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu; and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru. Last month, Faiveley bought a 0.10-hectare parcel within the grand cru vineyard of Musigny – one of Burgundy’s most prized sites.
