Domaine Faiveley 2018 Mercurey Clos Myglands 1er Cru
Another of Domaine Faiveley’s famed monopoles, 1er Cru Clos de Myglands (mee-glaund) is a 14-acre parcel located north of the village of Mercurey and adjacent to Faiveley’s lieu-dit La Framboisière. Vines here date back to 1961 and are planted in a mixture of clay and limestone soils.
From the winemaker: The nose reveals notes of black and red fruits combined with subtle woody and smoky notes. The palate offers the same rich, fruity aromas as the nose. This full-bodied wine has a velvety tannic backbone which gives a sensation of warmth on the smooth finish.
