This Pinot Noir comes from Domaine Faiveley, one of the most significant Domaines in the rarefied region Burgundy. As one of the most accessible Premier Cru Burgundies on the market, it is extraordinary value for a wine of this quality. This is the perfect entry point for Premier Cru Burgundy.
Lovely black fruit with some wet earth and black mushrooms, following through to a full-bodied palate with a gorgeous core of ripe-berry flavors and soft, savory texture. Velvety.

As I wrote earlier this year, Faiveley's 2019 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is a success, delivering aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, espresso roast and spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins and lively acids, it's a heartier, more muscular wine than the ethereal Framboisière.

Faiveley's 2019 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with woodsmoke, loamy soil and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, it's velvety and succulent, with fine depth at the core and a suave, elegant profile.
