Mercurey Rouge 1er Cru Clos des Myglands 2019

Domaine Faiveley

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 Information

The 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.

    "The 2019 Mercurey Vieilles Vignes offers up inviting aromas of raspberries, plums, spices and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, melting and succulent, with lively acids and powdery tannins, it's produced from 30 or so hectares of vineyards and sees 13 months in barrels, 10% of which are new."

    "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."

Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, it's velvety and succulent, with fine depth at the core and a suave, elegant profile."

    "The 2019 Mercurey Clos des Myglands 1er Cru, from the 6.31-hectare monopole, has a bright nose of red currant and cranberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannins, but there is freshness and focus on the finish."
