Winemaker Notes

Mercurey; located in the Cote Chalonnaise is the largest appellation in all of Burgundy with over 1600 acres under vine. Domaine Faiveley's village Mercurey is sourced from 5 parcels spread throughout the appellation for a total of 95 acres. Vines date back as far as 1962 and soils are primarily clay and limestone.

A beautiful dark ruby color. The nose opens up with notes of fresh red fruits and spices. Pleasant to taste, this wine has a round and fruity attack before revealing its fine and silky tannins. This well-balanced wine with long-lasting aromas will be appreciated by knowledgeable wine lovers and will seduce novices too....

Wine Spectator
Fine depth of flavor and juicy cherry fruit mark this red. Licorice, plum, spice and stone notes complement the core of ripe cherry. Harmonious enough to enjoy now. Drink now through 2028

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey is a snappy and racy red wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, frisky, and piquant. Pair its bright red fruit with Meyer-accented, fresh salmon sashimi. (Tasted: October 30, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Domaine Faiveley Winery Video

Founded in 1825, Bourgognes Faiveley has been handed down from father to son for over 175 years. As the sixth generation to take the reins, François Faiveley manages, with equal amounts passion and competence, the largest family domaine in Burgundy. Methodically reconstructing vineyards fractured by French inheritance laws, Bourgognes Faiveley today owns more appellations in their entirety (monopoles) than any other domaine in Burgundy.

"Faiveley’s wines are... supremely clean and elegant: definitive examples of Pinot Noir... above all they have richness and breed, the thumbprint of a master winemaker."

-Clive Coates M.W.

Beloved for its deep and flavorful reds made of Pinot noir, Mercurey is the largest and most important village in the Côte Chalonnaise with most of its vineyards tucked away in hillsides or stretched along the aptly-named “Golden Valley.” This valley, sheltered from the moist and cool air that funnels along at lower elevations, is ideal for ripening Pinot noir.

Mercurey follows strict yield laws, similar to those at the Côte d’Or village level, promoting the development of deep, full, concentrated and age-worthy Pinot noirs. In their youth, a chewy and rich structure supports flavors of ripe strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Age brings notes of underbrush, tobacco and cocoa.

While Pinot noir claims the majority of Mercurey vineyard acreage, Chardonnay does grow here and produces uniqely floral and spicey scented white wines.
