The Wine

Clos Rochette monopole vineyard of Domaine Faiveley is located in the heart of the Mercurey appellation. This is an extremely rocky vineyard with soils of clay, limestone and gravel. Vines date back to 1960. Grapes are hand harvested, sorted and pressed on site in Mercurey. Following vinification the young wines are brought to the domaine cellars in Nuits-St-Georges for aging. To preserve freshness only a small portion of the wine is aged in oak, with the majority staying in stainless steel for the 10-12 month aging period.

90 Points William Kelley, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate : 100'% Chardonnay "Offering up a pretty bouquet of yellow apples, pear and fresh peach, the 2018 Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette is medium-bodied, elegantly textural and fine-boned, with a delicate core of fruit, lively acids and a nicely defined finish. This is a pretty, charming white that's already drinking well."

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.
