2019 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Vieilles Vignes

Burgundy | Pinot Noir
"The 2019 Mercurey Vieilles Vignes offers up inviting aromas of raspberries, plums, spices and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, melting and succulent, with lively acids and powdery tannins, it's produced from 30 or so hectares of vineyards and sees 13 months in barrels, 10% of which are new. The Faiveley family first produced wine from rented vines in Mercurey in 1933, finally beginning to acquire land there three decades later. Today, with over 72 hectares to their name, they number equally among the Côte Chalonnaise's most important landholders and its qualitative reference points. The 2019 vintage is a particular success here; and as average yields fall, a result of increasing vine age and climatic conditions, the compensation seems to be that the wines get better and better. Indeed, the 2019 portfolio is the finest set of Côte Chalonnaise wines I've ever tasted from Faiveley."
90 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

"A fresh and well-balanced vintage. Deep ruby red in colour with notes of fresh red fruits and spice on the nose. This wine is a pleasure to drink thanks to its smooth, fruity attack and delicate, silky tannins. This well-balanced and intensely aromatic wine will win over wine experts and amateurs alike."
