MERCUREY “LA FRAMBOISIERE" MONOPOLE 2018Domaine Faiveley
This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.
This Côte Chalonnaise village gets its name from the God Mercury (God of Merchants). The story goes that a temple was erected here in honour of this deity. This climat La Framboisière produces wines with real character and is one of Faiveley’s highly reputed wines.
This wine has a really fruity powerful nose, which mixes with generous red and black fruit aromas and woody notes. However, it is on the palate that it shows its full potential, where it is powerful and fleshy with flavours of raspberry and other very ripe red fruits, almost as if you were biting into them. Its structure is powerful, with velvety tannins and a very long and fruity finish.
Food Pairing: Grilled Meats, Cold Meats. Serve between 14º-16ºC
