The Wine

"Wafting from the glass with aromas of black cherries, cassis, raw cocoa and subtle spices, the 2018 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy is medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, its deep core of fruit framed by succulent acids and velvety tannins. This is quite a lavish, gourmand Clos du Roy from Faiveley in the making, but it will require a little bottle age to reach its peak... Unsurprisingly, the style bears a certain resemblance with the contemporary Faiveley style as expounded in the Côte d'Or: that's to say, pure and precise wines that no longer display any trace of structural asperity for which the house was once known and often carry a judicious veneer of new oak in their youth." 92+ points William Kelley

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.
