Food Pairings for Faiveley Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette
Family owned for 7 generations, Faiveley has an awesome selection of vineyards in pretty much all areas of Burgundy. Their traditional strengths are in the Cotes de Nuits and Mercurey however recent purchases in the Cotes de Beaune have widened their appeal. 80% of their grape requirements are sourced from their own vineyards. The grapes of are pressed and vinifed on site in Mercurey and it is then brought to Nuits-Saint-Georges to be matured. The 'Mercurey Clos Rochette' has beautiful complex aromas. It is very expressive on the nose with scents of white flowers and spices. There is a wonderful liveliness on the palate to begin with, which is slightly attenuated by the roundness and smoothness from being raised in oak. The mix of tastes works harmoniously to give us a wine of great delicacy. It has a brilliant pale yellow color. The nose is fresh, with distinct minerality and vanilla/oak notes. The entrance is bold and straightforward. This wine is balanced on the palate, showing richness and acidity. Superb with fish, poultry or vol-au-vent (puff pastry).
