90pts James Suckling

A very impressive Mercurey, thanks to the generous raspberry and sour-cherry fruit character, the elegant tannins and the fresh acidity. Everything fits so neatly and there's enough structure for this to age really well. Excellent vitality at the long, uplifting finish. Drink or hold.

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Vinified with some 20% whole bunch this year, Faiveley's 2020 Mercurey La Framboisière offers up inviting aromas of sweet berries, plums, rose petals and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and seamless, it's rich but lively, standing out as one of the more supple, ethereal wines in this year's range. It exemplifies the great value still to be found in contemporary Burgundy.

Winemaker Notes

This wine reveals a powerful, fruity nose combining rich notes of red and black fruits and a subtle hint of oak. La Framboisière offers a powerful palate dominated by crunchy red fruits. Its velvety tannins and exceptional length make it a pleasure to drink.

Serve with beef wellington, game stew with chestnuts, capon with morel mushrooms, lemon and chocolate cake.
