Domaine Faiveley Re-Fill

With the 25% tariffs imposed last October Burgundy prices have been steadily increasing making an already expensive region even more so. Thankfully our good friends at Frederick Wildman have us covered with a fantastic selection of Domaine Faiveley wines that were already stateside before the tariffs took effect.

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochettes...$29.99
From a stony parcel adjacent to Faiveley's Framboisière, the 2017 Mercurey Blanc Clos Rochette is showing very well indeed, wafting from the glass with scents of citrus oil, spring blossom, nutmeg and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a delicately textural attack, excellent cut and concentration and a chalky finish. It will be well worth seeking out.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Framboisiere 1er Cru...$39.99
Tightly wound, yet dense, with flavors of cherry, currant, sandalwood, olive and sweet spices, this is intense and persistent on the lingering aftertaste. Finely wrought and balanced. Best from 2021 through 2033
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos Myglands 1er Cru...$51.99
A tangy, succulent style, this red exhibits cherry, raspberry, currant, spice and stony mineral aromas and flavors. Elegant and linear, extending on the long, fruit-stained aftertaste. Drink now through 2032.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Domaine Faiveley Beaune Clos d'Ecu 1er Cru...$59.99
Though generous, this is also lively and solid, with cherry, currant, spice and herbal flavors riding a vibrant structure. Dense tannins suggest that this needs time. Sapid finish
Rated 93/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2016 Domaine Faiveley Chambolle Musigny...$89.99
Macerated flavors of cherry, black currant, violet, spice and soy are wrapped in a silky texture. Well-structured, with all the elements in the right proportions. Shows fine length and potential. Best from 2022 through 2036.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
