Reviews and Ratings

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is lovely Burgundy Pinot that does not disappoint for the price. It is a great food wine that has notes of sour red cherries, cranberries with a little underbrush. It has nicely balanced acidity and mouthfeel, followed by cherry finish. It paired perfectly with smoked salmon and pizza!
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tart and tight, with generous acidity this Pinot Noir is built to pair with classic old world roast pork, roast turkey, seasonal favourites. Ruby red and bright. Cranberry, cherry with savoury, minerality, great complexity, and well structured. Mouthwatering acidity. Tasted 2014 vintage in Dec 2017 (as indicated from bar code scanner - vintage is not marked on bottle labelling). 91 points.
In the Côte Chalonnaise region, the Mercurey district is the largest, and known for producing the best wine. The Burgundian winery Domaine Faiveley was founded in 1825, and owns numerous Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards in the appellations of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune as well a number of Premier Cru vineyards in the Côte Chalonnaise. The 2014 vintage of the Faiveley Mercurey sources grapes from the best parcels in the Côte Chalonnaise area. - Community Wine Reviews
