Brand 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., in this case the village of Mercurey. 

Located in the Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey is the largest appellation in Burgundy with over 1600 acres under vine, and Domaine Faiveley is a specialist in this area. Their village Mercurey Blanc here is sourced from 3 parcels in the heart of the appellation that total to 7.29 acres. Vines date back as far as 1974 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. To preserve freshness only a small portion of the wine is aged in oak, with the majority staying in stainless steel for the 10-12 month aging period.

This stony, deep, delicious Mercurey blanc has oodles of ripe apples and minerals on the nose and in the mouth. The first thing that leapt to mind for food pairing was oysters/scallops, but this will shine with virtually any seafood dish you put in front of it. You can taste the pedigree in this, some of the vines are close to 50 years in age. For folks looking for values in white Burgundy, look no further.
