The wines of Maison Fatien are produced from vineyards of almost 4 hectares, worked exclusively by Charly Fatien. The parcelles are spread over prestigious appellations of the Cote de Beaune and the Cote de Nuits: Gevrey Chambertin, Beaune, Pommard and Volnay. Maison Fatien adds to its range by extremely judicious selection of additional grapes.
Driven by their taste for prestigious Burgundy wines, the Fatiens have not held back in their determination to produce top quality wines. The finest possible facilities were established, from the time of production of the very first wines, to create optimum conditions for a superior product. But the most important aspect is 'time'. They have given themselves time for their investment to bear fruit. Respect for the rhythm of nature is in fact essential for the production of exceptional wines.
"The most important aspect is for everything to be well thought out and to obey the laws of nature. The objective is minimum interference, to leave the wine to take its own time. The ageing of the reds, for example, takes two years," explains Charly Fatien.
"Quality begins with low yields on the vines, whether that be for the wines from our own vineyards or for the grapes we buy in. Control of the development of the vine is what really counts. That, and the decision of when precisely to harvest."
