Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos des Myglands 2018
Winemaker Notes :
The nose reveals notes of black and red fruits combined with subtle woody and smoky notes. The palate offers the same rich, fruity aromas as the nose. This full-bodied wine has a velvety tannic backbone which gives a sensation of warmth on the smooth finish. Serve with fillet of beef with slow cooked vegetables, and strawberry tart.
This is always beautiful with dried strawberries, flowers and hints of rosebush. Medium-to full-bodied with a round yet poignant tannin background and fresh acidity. Lively Mercurey. Drink or hold.
Faiveley's exemplary Mercurey Premier Cru comes from a substantial six-hectare parcel that faces east on a very gentle slope. Just a little more concentrated than its La Framboisière cuvée - which is also worth buying - this is rich, sunny and full of red berry and bramble fruit with good underlying zip, fine tannins and suave 30% new wood. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028.
The 2018 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is one of the most charming, immediate wines in the range this year, delivering notes of dark berries, red plums, baking chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and expansive, it's open and velvety, with lively acids and a nicely defined finish.
