External Reviews for Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos Rochette Blanc
This vineyard neighbours that of La Framboisière which produces powerful red wines. In the Clos Rochette, the soil is particularly compact and hard to work, being strewn with little rocks, hence the name. Rich and complex white wines are produced here. To maintain all the freshness and quality of the grapes, they are pressed and vinifed on site in Mercurey. The wine is then brought to Nuits-Saint-Georges to be matured. Only a small part of the cuvée is raised in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months, which allows the wine to acquire delicate woody notes without masking the liveliness and the character sought after in the Côte Chalonnaise white wines.
Though it’s the flagship AOC of the Côte Chalonnaise Mercurey is a region that is still pretty obscure; luckily in Premier-speak “obscure” usually translates to “great buy.” This Chardonnay has a distinct appley undertone balanced by a profound mineral character.
