Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Rouge Premier Cru 'Clos du Roy' 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Family owned for 7 generations, Faiveley has an awesome selection of vineyards in pretty much all areas of Burgundy. Their traditional strengths are in the Cotes de Nuits and Mercurey however recent purchases in the Cotes de Beaune have widened their appeal. 80% of their grape requirements are sourced from their own vineyards. To maintain all the freshness and quality of the grapes, they are pressed and vinified on site in Mercurey. Then the wine is brought to Nuits-Saint-Georges to be matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents on average one third of the cuvée. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast. On the nose, the 'Mercurey Rouge Premier Cru 'Clos du Roy' has scents of small red fruits mix pleasantly with spicy and woody aromas, which come from the wine being raised traditionally in oak. This wine is very nicely balanced on the palate. Its rich aromas blend marvelously with its tannins, giving a wine which is greedy and full of body.
