2018 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Myglands"

SKU #1484271 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is always beautiful with dried strawberries, flowers and hints of rosebush. Medium-to full-bodied with a round yet poignant tannin background and fresh acidity. Lively Mercurey. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Faiveley's exemplary Mercurey Premier Cru comes from a substantial six-hectare parcel that faces east on a very gentle slope. Just a little more concentrated than its La Framboisière cuvée - which is also worth buying - this is rich, sunny and full of red berry and bramble fruit with good underlying zip, fine tannins and suave 30% new wood. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is one of the most charming, immediate wines in the range this year, delivering notes of dark berries, red plums, baking chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and expansive, it's open and velvety, with lively acids and a nicely defined finish. As I wrote last year, the Faiveley family first produced wine from rented vines in Mercurey in 1933, finally beginning to acquire land there three decades later. Today, with over 72 hectares to their name, they number equally among the Côte Chalonnaise's most important landholders and its qualitative reference points, so I'm happy to resume coverage of their wines in these pages. Unsurprisingly, the style bears a certain resemblance with the contemporary Faiveley style as expounded in the Côte d'Or: that's to say, pure and precise wines that no longer display any trace of structural asperity for which the house was once known and often carry a judicious veneer of new oak in their youth. The Faiveley reds and whites from Mercurey, Montagny and Rully are more immediately accessible and see less new wood, but they play off the same themes and rank among the region's finest. What's more, the domaine's significant holdings mean that many of these bottlings are unusually accessible by Burgundian standards. (WK) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Burghound Outstanding Value!!* A mild touch of reduction blurs the detail but the fruit is clearly ripe. Otherwise there is a highly seductive mouthfeel to the solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that possess even better depth on the more structured and slightly rustic finale. This is blessed with plenty of dry extract and is very promising for improving over the mid-term. Recommended for value. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "This cuvée sees 20% new wood, aiming for a little more structure. Now assembled in tank for bottling after harvest. Rich dense purple colour. There is a glossy style to the nose along with a touch of oak, not obstreperous. A wealth of fruit but less forthcoming, with its steely backbone inside ripe cherry fruits. Useful acidity here to keep it fresh."

The next great value in red Burgundy is here!! The 2018 Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Myglands" is an amazing value that literally screams from the glass you need to buy me-you won't be sorry. Wave after wave of luscious red cherry fruit deftly mingles with crisp mineral notes, firm acidity and suave tannins. A gorgeous example of what the 2018 Burgundy vintage has to offer this ready-to-drink red is a beautiful example of the heights Mercurey can reach from a top vineyard in a strong vintage. If you have had previous vintages of the Faiveley Mercruey 1er Cru "Myglands" you owe it to yourself to grab this beauty before it sells out.
Top Value! Drink from 2020 to 2035
