Faiveley Mercurey la Framboisière 2007
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 are pressed and vinified on site in Mercurey. Then the wine is brought to Nuits-Saint-Georges to be matured, in part, in oak barrels for 12 to 14 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The barrels come from high quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.'La Framboisière' has a really fruity powerful nose, which mixes greedy red and black fruit aromas and woody notes. But it is on the palate that it shows its full potential, where it is powerful and fleshy with flavours of raspberry and other very ripe red fruits, almost as if we were biting into them. Its structure is powerful, with velvety tannins and a very long and fruity finish.
