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.  Mercurey is located in the Cote Chalonnaise,and is the largest appellation in Burgundy with over 1600 acres under vine. Domaine Faiveley's village Mercurey is sourced from 5 parcels spread throughout the appellation for a total of 95 acres. Vines date back as far as 1962 and soils are primarily clay and limestone.  
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.

Wine SpectatorPurity is the hallmark of this sleek red, whose vibrant structure marshals the flavors of cherry, raspberry and currant to a lingering conclusion. Balanced and focused, this fades gracefully with berry, orange zest and spice notes. Drink now through 2030. 1,975 cases imported.
