Mercurey is the most important village in the Cote Chalonnaise in Burgundy, and the producer of as much as two-thirds of that district’s wine. These wines have lower permitted yields and tend to be somewhat fuller and more serious than those of their neighbors. Most of the production consists of red wines made from Pinot Noir, though a little white wine from Chardonnay is made as well. This is one of those appellations that easily refute the charge that there is no value in Burgundy.

  • I'm on board!I am willing to take one for the team, but I don't see any ... year old Burgundy, even from Mercurey, is not necessarily ready for pasture.  Anything calling itself "late harvest" or "port" should be measured in decades or they need to change the name.  I'm good to help on the Mayacamas Chardonnay, the Copain Rose, and we need a ve...

  • Faiveley Mercurey Clos des Myglands 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A touch minty on the nose at first, then this displays more of smoky, earthy note with subtle notes of meaty, dark berry fruit framed with notes of rust, vanilla, and dried ginger. Smooth, fairly rich and polished with a real fine core of nervous acidity supporting earthy and slightly leather burnished cherry fruit. Theres a lovely dark soil ton... Read More

  • Maison Albert Bichot Mercurey 2010

    Snoothrank:

    "Under the purplish red color, the nose is simple and medium. Dry, medium bodied and fruity with refreshing acidity. Smooth tannins and a slender mouthfeel." [From "Pinot Noir" blind tasting at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 13 October 2012.] Read More

  • Faiveley Mercurey 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Faiveley Mercurey is dark and inviting with rich strawberry jam and floral notes. The mouthfeel is smooth, balanced and full of cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavours. Very good Mercurey with excellent depth and a medium to long finish. Lacks the elegance and finesse of the better Cru but excellent all the same; PN fans stock up. 89 po... Read More

  • Chateau de Chamirey Mercurey Rouge 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Mercury is one of the great unsung hero's of Burgundy. It sports a handful of Premier Crus such as Les Reulles (a monopole) and when in the hands of a great producer like Chamirey or Faivley, it makes wines of supreme value.As the nose opens up after a little air you're greeted by plums and cherries with hints of earthiness creeping in. Those ... Read More

  •  So keeping with the Cali vs France theme I popped another Burg tonight. ... This one is an 06 Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos Du Roy" I picked up from LastBottle when they had their moving blowout sale a couple weeks ago. It was hard as nails. Cranberry and ripe strawberry with a huge bitter bite that leads to a stemmy finish. Needs time, rig... Read More

  • The Faiveley tasting attended last night with a good friend at Wally's in ... the 2008 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey "La Framboisiere": The wine has tension, as with most outstanding wines, good dynamics between the fruit and the acid. This gave tastes of sour and sweet cherries and raspberries. Not overly complex or long, but a wine you just don'... Read More

  • Domaine du Meix Foulot Mercurey Premier Cru 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Definitely needs decanting to make the flavors come alive. Very bright and alive with a dark earthiness and springy lilac. Reminded me of the buds of spring, which was great on a chilly winter night with saucy fish dishes. Probably even better in a couple of years. Read More
