Tasting Notes

The Mercurey Clos Rond comes from a single vineyard in Mercurey. The name means "the walled vineyard in that brambly area," derived from the local word "Ronde" instead of the more usual French "Ronce," meaning brambles. In a land where ownership is usually splintered, this vineyard is a rare case where the entire vineyard is under one owner, Domaine Faiveley. It lies on a gentle slope, with rich red-brown soil, a fairly high clay content, and buried limestone beneath. The result is a Pinot Noir displaying rich, round fruit, both red and black, and just a hint of the earthiness for which Mercurey is known. As Clive Coates writes about the Mercureys from Domaine Faiveley: "The same perfectionism is evident here as at Nuits-St-Georges. The recipe includes low yields, hand harvesting, a severe triage [sorting], the use of indigenous yeasts, and relatively cool fermentation temperatures." A classic Mercurey, this wine deftly combines crunchy red fruits, spice notes and brisk minerality in the form of graphite notes and wet stone. A great introduction to a classic red Burgundy. It won’t break the bank but is perfectly pleasing. You can pair this with grilled lamb and pork chops.
