Domaine Faiveley - Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette Monopole 2019
Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: Clos Rochette is a 11 acre monopole of Domaine Faiveley located in the heart of the Mercurey appellation. This is an extremely rocky vineyard with soils of clay, limestone and gravel. Vines date back to 1960.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, sorted and pressed on site in Mercurey. Following vinification the young wines are brought to the domaine cellars in Nuits-St-Georges for aging. To preserve freshness only a small portion of the wine is aged in oak, with the majority staying in stainless steel for the 10-12 month aging period.
Additional Details editThis wine reveals exceptionally complex aromas and a fresh nose offering white flowers and spices. The lively attack gives way to a smooth, oily palate thanks to its oak ageing. The flavors and aromas combine harmoniously resulting in a beautifully elegant wine. Technical Details

"The 2019 Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette bursts with aromas of pear, melon, fresh bread, citrus oil and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with fine concentration and chalky structure, it concludes with a long, mouthwatering finish."
