Faiveley Mercurey 2009
A beautiful dark ruby colour. The nose opens up with notes of fresh red fruits and spices. Pleasant to taste, this wine has a round and fruity attack before revealing its fine and silky tannins. This well-balanced wine with long-lasting aromas will be appreciated by knowledgeable winelovers and will seduce novices too….
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 points.
