Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette 2015
Clos Rochette is a 11 acre monopole of Domaine Faiveley located in the heart of the Mercurey appellation. This is an extremely rocky vineyard with soils of clay, limestone and gravel. Vines date back to 1960, and the youngest vines were planted in 1999. 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.
James SucklingVery pretty and lively with stones and minerals. Dried apples and lemon zest. Medium to full body, beautiful density and intense flavors. Hints of lime on the finish. Some salt to boot. A monopole white from Cte de Chalonnaise.
Wine SpectatorRipe, open and harmonious, this white shows peach, apple, lemon and subtle butterscotch flavors. Mouthwatering and tangy on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2021. 60 cases imported.
