This is the 4th vintage that this wine has benefitted from the up-graded Faiveley winery in Mercurey. The wine now ferments in smaller vats, allowing individual focus and more precise temperature control. 20% whole clusters were retained, for this 2017. A modest but judicious proportion of new oak was chosen for barrel-ageing, and the wine was bottled in October, to preserve its luscious freshness. Colour is medium deep, purple-ruby, with aromas very fragrant. The palate shows intense yet gentle fruit, fine density, lovely aftertaste (for drinking 2019-2025+).
