"Shows the breed and class of a wine from the Cote d'Or, this is from a 6.31ha monopole in Mercurey, on east-facing slopes near the northern edge of the village. The colour is surprisingly saturated and the nose displays a forward, perfumed plummy fruit to accompany the silky texture, and supple tannic structure. Partial whole cluster fermentation and then ageing in cask for 15 months in cask, 30% new.Drinking Window 2021 - 2026." -CC 10/2020

"Faiveley's 2019 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with woodsmoke, loamy soil and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, it's velvety and succulent, with fine depth at the core and a suave, elegant profile. Jérôme Flous told me that Faiveley began picking on September 9, finishing by the 20th, and that yields averaged out at around 35 hectoliters per hectare in white and a little less in red. Comparing the 2019 vintage to "a more concentrated version of 2010," he admires—as I do—its vibrant fruit tones and refined tannins, finding it more elegant than 2018. The quality of the red wines chez Faiveley is old news, and for more information on this firm's evolution I direct readers to my report published in the August 2020 Week 1 issue of The Wine Advocate. It's worth underlining, however, how good the whites are these days: Flous tells me that he now includes fûts from Damy and Chassin in the white wine barrel program, and in the last few vintages, I've found the wines' new oak component better and better integrated." -WK 01/2021
