2016 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Framboisiere 75CL
This is spicy, boasting cinnamon and vanilla notes well-matched to a core of sweet cherry flavors. Silky and harmonious, this lingers, with a mouthwatering feel and tangy fruit.
Established since 1825 in the Nuits-Saint-Georges area, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the Faiveley family is today at the helm of one of the most beautiful estates in Burgundy. Since 2005, it has been up to the seventh generation of this influential wine family – represented by Erwan Faiveley and his sister Eve Faiveley since 2014 - to pursue the standards of excellence specific to this great Burgundy estate.
Domaine Faiveley combines with remarkable grace two seemingly opposing principles: a vast, 300-acre empire of vines stretching from the Côte Chalonnais all the way up to Chablis on the one hand, and a terroir-specific approach with individual attention on each vine plot on the other.
This world-renowned estate produces a dazzling portfolio of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from a collection of terroirs generously studded by prestigious Grand Cru and Premier Cru plots. In doing so, two centuries of winemaking savoir-faire are seamlessly blended with an innovative, modern approach, resulting in wines of great purity that offer faithful reflections of their terroirs of origin.
