Domaine Faiveley Clos du Roy, Mercurey 1er Cru 2016, France

  • PRESS: James Sucking- 94 points. "A stunning wine that is revolutionary for the Côte Chalonnaise appellation. You could easily mistake this for a top Côte d'Or wine, even for a Grand Cru. However, this is still very young and needs time until 2020 (at the very least) for the complex licorice, black forest berries and spicy bouquets to develop fully. Deep and concentrated with a lot of tannins, making this suave and silky. 50% whole cluster and great fruit quality have given this a couple of decades of aging potential."

    Winemaker Notes:

    This wine reveals a deep ruby red hue and a nose characterised by small black fruits and a touch of oak and spice. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and well-balanced. The richness of its aromas and tannins give it exceptional body, length and complexity.
