Domaine Faiveley - Mercurey Rouge 1er Cru Clos des Myglands 2018
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: Another of Domaine Faiveley's famed monopoles, 1er Cru Clos de Myglands (mee-glaund) is a 14 acre parcel located north of the village of Mercurey and adjacent to Faiveley's lieu-dit La Framboisière. Vines here date back to 1961 and are planted in a mixture of clay and limestone soils.
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. The wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak for 12 to 14 months prior to release. Approximately 1/3 of the oak is first use.
Additional Details editThe nose reveals notes of black and red fruits combined with subtle woody and smoky notes. The palate offers the same rich, fruity aromas as the nose. This full-bodied wine has a velvety tannic backbone which gives a sensation of warmth on the smooth finish.

"This is always beautiful with dried strawberries, flowers and hints of rosebush. Medium-to full-bodied with a round yet poignant tannin background and fresh acidity. Lively Mercurey. Drink or hold."

"The 2018 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is one of the most charming, immediate wines in the range this year, delivering notes of dark berries, red plums, baking chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and expansive, it's open and velvety, with lively acids and a nicely defined finish."
