Top Burgundy: Interview with Erwan Faiveley

For fans of Burgundy, the name Domaine Faiveley has a special resonance. From Mercurey to the grandest Chambertin, Faiveley's wines are some of the most delicious, beautiful expressions of the famed region's terroir.

I recently had a chance to speak with Erwan Faiveley about his family's wines, his role at the estate, and the region in general. Along the way, he even answered that age-old question of whether great wine comes from the vineyard or the winery.

We spoke before the Wilson Daniels tasting in New York--the background noise is the other producers arriving and setting up their wines. Even at 9:00 in the morning, there's no sound quite as wonderful as corks being popped.

For a look at the vineyards themselves, click here and check out the video called "Fine Tuning at Domaine Faiveley," part of a series that Wilson Daniels has produced for a number of its wines.
