Domaine Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Myglands" 2011
It uses powerful aromas of spice bread and liquorice, together with delicate woody and menthol notes. The tannins are silky and give the wine good volume which perfectly balances out the whole.
Pinot Noir blend. Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvees unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir. The name of this premier cru, Clos des Myglands, is a monopoly or single estate vineyard belonging to Domaine Faiveley. It probably comes from the English "My Land," a name given to these places by an English dignitary. On the nose and on the palate, the Mercurey "Clos des Myglands" 2008 is complex and greedy, which makes for a warmhearted wine.
