The Wine

93 points James Suckling “A full cherry and floral nose. Sleek and elegant on the palate with fine-grained, dry tannins and a very long, salty finish. Drink or hold. 

90-92 points Allen Meadows – Burghound “A pungent nose consists of wood and reductive aromas. Otherwise there is good freshness and verve to the dense and serious medium weight flavors that flash outstanding minerality on the moderately rustic and built-to-age finish. This is very good though note that it will need at least some patience.” *Outstanding Top Value*

About the Wine Maker

It was Guy Faiveley who in 1964 decided to expand the vineyard holdings of Domaine Faiveley into the Côte Chalonnaise mainly in the Village of Mercurey, The main reason for the purchase was to be able to offer good value wines from Burgundy since already back then the wines from the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune were expensive! Mercurey is mainly a red appellation but there is a small amount of Mercurey Blanc made from Chardonnay both on village and premier cru sites.
