The nose sets aromas of black and red fruits against a woody and smoky base. The same greedy, fruity flavours are found on the palate. This wine is well structured with beautiful volume and velvety tannins. All the elements blend together harmoniously giving a silky and hearty wine.
The name of this Premier Cru, which is a monopole or single estate vineyard of Domaine Faiveley, probably comes from the English ‘My Lands’, the name given to this site by an English dignitary.

|Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Historically based in the Cote de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climats in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited.
Faiveley exploits more than 10 hectares of Grand Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climats that are exclusively owned by the family – these are the monopoles - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu,… and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru.
