Mercurey 1er Cru Le Clos du Roy 2018 in Magnum - Faiveley

  

THE VINTAGE AT THE ESTATE

2018 is an early vintage. We started harvesting on August 27th in Côte Chalonnaise with our Mercurey and in Côte de Beaune with the Corton " Clos des Cortons Faiveley". The harvest ended on September 15th. The sanitary state of the vines was excellent, the bunches were well supplied and ripe. This is a classic vintage that we will be able to appreciate quickly as it is already very pleasant.

 

CHARACTERISTIC OF THE APPELLATION

"La Favorite" is a plot selection of Mercurey 1er Cru "Le Clos du Roy" from vines located on the south-east facing slope. From the 2009 vintage, we have harvested, vinified and matured this wine separately in order to produce a Cru of excellence in the Côte Chalonnaise. Why "La Favorite"? When King Henri IV came to lay siege to Château de Montaigu in Mercurey, he was accompanied by his Favorite, Gabrielle d'Estrée. While the royal troops were laying siege to the walls, the king visited Givry, whose wine he enjoyed. A fine palate, Gabrielle d'Estrée, preferred Mercurey...

VINIFICATION & MATURING

The grapes are cut and sorted by hand. The proportions of the destemming and the whole harvest vary according to each vintage. Two daily pigeages are carried out to extract from the skins of the grapes their colour, tannins and aromas. After 15 to 19 days of vatting, the alcoholic fermentation is completed. The free-run wine is run off by gravity, while a slow and gentle pressing of the marc produces a press wine of great purity. For 15 months, we mature our wines in French oak barrels (30% of which are new) selected for the finesse of their grain and their moderate toasting in our cellars at natural and constant humidity and temperature.

 

TASTING

This wine has a beautiful deep ruby colour. On the nose, the scents of small black berries blend pleasantly with spicy aromas and a delicate woodiness. Full and concentrated on the palate, this wine has a very good balance. Its aromatic richness combines marvellously with its tannins to make a wine of remarkable length, corpulent and greedy.

Serve with: Fillet of beef with Epoisses, lamb chops

Temperature: 14°C to 16°C
