Faiveley Mercurey la Framboisière 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"...big, rich and sweet in the mouth, with a strong pineapple flavor. Much cooler and more primary on the slowly building whiplash of a finish, which features superb citric energy and a tactile thickness. One senses that this extremely young wine is just starting to take on its textural richness. This will no doubt be bottled on the late side. The highest in acidity and lowest in pH of these 2009s...93-96" IWC 07/10

Full red with ruby tones. Incredible high-pitched nose combines raspberry, pepper, rose petal, red licorice, crushed stone, flowers, menthol and eucalyptus. The palate offers extraordinary sweetness but the wine’s minerally lift and intense sappiness gives it a weightless impression. Shows the noble side of Corton grand cru, not to mention uncanny intensity; Faiveley made 42 hectoliters per hectare in 2009, but the wine tastes like half that. Finishes with incredible length and verve; offhand, I can’t think of a longer 2009. Should be a cellar treasure.

Enticing aromas of black cherry and black currant introduce this silky red. As the fruit unfolds, smoke, spice and mineral elements emerge, persisting through the long aftertaste. This is harmonious and suave, with the class and complexity worthy of its status as a grand cru. So fleshy, the tannins are buried now. Best from 2014 through 2030.
