Rounder, fuller and richer than the Les Cloux a bolder interpretation of Rully. Soft plush and generous, yet still not heavy. A little broader across the back palate though tightening as it finishes. A great set of flavours. A comforting Chardonnay that envelops you. As seems typical of the two Domaines of the family there is a good deal of complexity. A subtle but not imperceptible application of wood sets off the cool and airy blend of white orchard fruit, citrus confit and a hint of cr

“The 2018 Rully offers up lovely aromas of cassis, blackberries, rich soil tones and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, round and fleshy, its generous core of fruit is underpinned by lively acids and velvety tannins. Last year, I wrote that the 2017 rendition was one of the most unabashedly delicious Rully reds that I can remember tasting from Vincent Dureuil, but this 2018 is just as charming—and with somewhat more depth, too.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate The full pote

18 months élévage shows in a complete lovely fine expressive, complex Chardonnay. The shift from tasting the Chablis of Bernard Defaix to Côte du Chalonaise wines of Jaeger-Defaix sees an immediate feel of opulence. No bâtonage old oak 100% malo. Again calm and harmonious. Les Cloux remains the tighter and more linear of the Domaine's two Premier Cru whites. Clearly rounder across the palate than the Chablis whilst maintaining clarity and complexity. Here the wood treatment is more su

Very good. Savoury, earthy, dark, wonderful textural, refinement, layers of red and black fruits & a little spice. Beautifully made. Musk and woody herb / stalk. An impressive rendition particularly for this coin. Balanced by a lovely line of natural acid  and excellent fine tannins with just the right amount of grip for the fruit weight. There’s a lot of pleasure to be had here and it will definitely offer more over the coming years. Jancis Robinson MW has written that the wines f

“The 2019 Rully is a great success, offering up an expressive bouquet of raspberries and plums. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, its pure and nicely concentrated core of fruit is framed by succulent acids.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 89-91 Points  The full potential of Mercurey and Rully reds is yet to be seen. Like all of Burgundy these two villages are evolving. We're seeing money from a couple of the big boys helping raise the bar. The little guys, farmers w

“The 2020 Rully delivers notions of cherries, smoky berries, exotic spices, loamy soil and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, lively and vibrant, with tangy acids, ripe tannins and a long, saline finish, it's impressively dynamic in this warm vintage. Forget it for at least five years and watch it blossom.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 90+ Points  The full potential of Mercurey and Rully reds is yet to be seen.

Give it a couple of days open or a few years in bottle and you'll go to a happy place. Reviews yet to come. Kelley's note below is of the 2020. Along with the Le Clos du Roy this represents one of the best value Burgundies on the market. As I wrote earlier this year, Faiveley's 2019 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is a success, delivering aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, espresso roast and spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins and lively acids, it's a

“The 2020 Rully Blanc is deep and vibrant, revealing notes of pear, freshly baked bread, Meyer lemon, mint and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with lively acids and an elegant, complete profile, it's beautifully balanced.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 90+ Points

Punching above its weight! Reviews yet to come. Kelley's note below is of the 2019. Along with the Clos de Myglands this represents one of the best value Burgundies on the market. Aromas of plums, spices, incense and soil tones, framed by a touch of toasty new oak, introduce the 2019 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy, a medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety wine that's fleshy and concentrated, with fine, powdery tannins and lively acids. This is an enveloping, gourmand wine from a 2.6-hec
