Faiveley produces 40,000 bottles of this lovely cuvée, which represents superb value. An appealing bouquet of strawberry, raspberry and coniferous forest floor, with subtle meaty bass notes, precedes a medium-full, supple and flavourful wine with a nice core of sweet fruit and fine, melted tannins. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. (WK)
Fragrant aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries with only a hint of wood, making this a very charming one. The combination of silky tannins and fresh acidity underline that beautifully. Full of character but relatively light in body. This is delicious now.
This wine, still young, is showing its wood aging while also celebrating delicious red fruits and balanced tannins. It promises spice, future balance and potential aging. It will integrate but don’t drink before 2022.
This is spicy, boasting cinnamon and vanilla notes well-matched to a core of sweet cherry flavors. Silky and harmonious, this lingers, with a mouthwatering feel and tangy fruit. (BS)
A moderately high-toned nose reflects notes of raspberry, cherry, violet and soft earth wisps. The mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is at once vibrant and succulent while delivering fine depth and length for a Mercurey villages. Recommended. *Outstanding, Top Value*
Lightish cherry red. Deliciously pure and sweet-smelling red fruit. Juicy and intense, packed with bright fruit and just a touch of spice. Persistent. Scented mid palate. You could drink this now! (JH)
(20% new oak; bottled two weeks before my November visit): Healthy bright red. Vibrant, slightly wild aromas of red berries, cinnamon, clove and black pepper, complicated by a balsamic nuance. Supple and nicely concentrated, with its cranberry and floral flavors enlivened by vibrant acidity (technical director Jérôme Flous noted that this wine has the lowest pH among the Faiveley reds in 2016). Finishes with very suave tannins and excellent energy and length. Showing virtually no ill effects from the recent bottling. (ST)
