This wine has a really fruity powerful nose, which mixes greedy red and black fruit aromas and woody notes. But it is on the palate that it shows its full potential, where it is powerful and fleshy with flavours of raspberry and other very ripe red fruits, almost as if we were biting into them.
Its structure is powerful, with velvety tannins and a very long and fruity finish.
This Cote Chalonnaise village gets its name from the God Mercury (God of Merchants). The story goes that a temple was erected here in honour of this deity. This climat La Framboisiere produces wines with real character and is one of Faiveley’s highly reputed wines.

|Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Historically based in the Cote de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climats in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited.
Faiveley exploits more than 10 hectares of Grand Crus and nearly 25 hectares of Premier Crus, including several climats that are exclusively owned by the family – these are the monopoles - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu,… and the Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru.
