Double 93-Point 1er Cru 2015 Red Burg for Under $40 - A Stunning, In-Stock Value - 12/12/2017 - Red Burgundy

Picking up not one, but two 93 point scores and at a super sharp price, the 2015 Faiveley Mercurey "Myglands" is probably the hottest deal going in red Burgundy right now. James Suckling was so impressed, he rhetorically asks in his review if this could be the “best ever” rendition of this long adored bottling from Faiveley. That’s no small amount of praise and is a testament to this 2015s broad appeal. It’s no secret that the prices for classic Burgundies like this one continue to rise with each successive vintage, making the $36.99 price tag here all the more impressive. Displaying the ample ripeness and balance, for which the 2015 vintage is so well known, the "Myglands" is densely packed with fresh red and black fruit flavors. These are joined by delightful accents of orange, stone, cinnamon, mint, and so much more. While still very youthful, it is open and accessible and ready to drink now, but also has the structure to develop for another ten years or more. For those who enjoy an impeccably crafted bottle of Pinot, we strongly recommend this more than impressive effort. Given its sharp price and limited production, we expect this 2015 will sell in a flash.

2015 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Myglands" (Monopole) ($36.99)

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of plums, orange peel and stones. Full-bodied, round and soft with a juicy finish. A deep and rich pinot. Fantastic wine. Made from six hectares. Best ever?" (04/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and pure, featuring cherry, blackberry, raspberry, mineral and light toast notes. Balanced and intense, playing out on the long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. *Top 100 Wines of 2017* (BS)" (12/2017)

88-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe and attractively fresh nose features notes of violet, plum, earth and dark currant. There is both good detail and energy to the sleekly textured middle weight flavors that deliver solid length on the balanced finish that displays only a touch of rusticity. *Top Value*" (01/2017)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This ripe and fruity wine comes from Faiveley's wholly-owned vineyard in Mercurey. A touch of tannin gives structure to the cherry fruits and ripe acidity. (RV)" (09/2014)

Vinous: "Medium red. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, pomegranate, tobacco and brown spices. A wine with moderate weight and fleshiness; dusty, spicy flavors of redcurrant, iron, tobacco and earth convey the ripeness of the vintage. Shows good breadth but not yet especially filled in. Hints of leather and earth add complexity. This satisfying, soil-driven wine is already quite expressive, Finishes with dusty tannins and a very good saline persistence. (ST)" (01/2018)

This might just be the best red Burgundy we have in-stock for under $40. The Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Myglands" has a beautiful nose of hibiscus, red berry and spice notes with a firm palate of red fruits, cinnamon, iodine and a cool rush of red fruit and wintergreen on the finish. A classically-styled red Burgundy that's priced for drinking tonight.

This is a premier cru super value! Expressive and juicy is Clos Myglands located in the Mercurey appellation of Cote Challonaise. With lovely concentration and ripe black cherry notes, this offers great texture and drinkability that will be the perfect addition to your holiday meal this year!
