Faiveley Mercurey 'Clos Rochette Monopole' Chardonnay 2018
Based in Nuits-St-Georges, the famous Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825 and in more recent times, the Domaine has dramatically expanded its vineyards across the entire Côte d'Or. The grapes are entirely destemmed and fermented in a mix of new wooden vats for the top end wines and stainless steel for the lesser cuvees. Once notorious for being reasonably austere, there has been less emphasis on extraction over the last ten years. As a result, the wines show increased freshness, purity of fruit and more judicious use of oak—a contender for one of the most improved Domaines in Burgundy over the last decade.
