2008 Faiveley Mercurey France 13% $24

Light on the nose, with high floral notes and lower crunchy yet sweet cranberry tones. This fleshes out with a little wood and mineral filling in the middle. Nicely sapid on entry, but with decent covering material. The fruit here is super approachable, round and ripe, and nicely pure, with small red cherry and candied raspberry notes accented by a touch of vanilla. The finish is fairly long, with a wiry mineral twang and lovely resonance of raspberry fruit. There’s nothing fancy here, just a wonderful introduction to the flavors, balance and texture of Burgundy.  88pts
