Description

Their large holdings in Mercurey piqued my interest and I believe these wines are just wonderful. Clos de Roi is softer than the Myglands but no less. Mineral with more red berry fruit and perfume and a touch of spice. This wine a pleasure to drink.

Faiveley are a large business in Burgundy who own large parcels all over the Cotes, including 70ha in Mercurey – a mostly overlooked region South of the Cote d’Or. From entry level to Grand Cru there is amazing care and attention.

Burgundy

The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines are produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region and so each small plot has a name.

Pinot Noir

This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
