Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2012 Eclipse is a Mavrodaphne, bottled in December 2013 after aging for 12 months in 50% new oak (half French and half American), 25% in 1-year old oak (half French and half American), and 25% in two-year old French oak. The creamy oak demeanor is front and center on opening, given this wine?s youth, but there is good structure and something underneath cutting through. With time (I gave it a couple hours of air), this evolved beautifully, pulling in the oak, allowing the fruit to rise above it and showing good balance overall. It became quite gracious. The alcohol did burble up here and there, but it was not overly distracting. It did thin a bit in time. There were 5,500 bottles produced. (Apr 2014)

Wine maker notes
Mavrodaphne grapes are bought from a single, high-altitude vineyard. Vinification and bottling is completed at the Gentilini winery. Fermented in steel vats and aged for 12 months in French oak casks. Dark red wine with layers of red fruit, spice, licorice and wild mint. On the palate, it is rich and complex with soft, round tannins and a long finish.

Producer
Our Domaine is located in Vergisson, a picturesque village perched up high in the hills at the heart of the historic Solutre and Vergisson site, in southern Burgundy. The vineyards stretch over 6 hectares in two appellations: Pouilly Fuisse and Saint-Veran. Our artisanal approach to viticulture allows us to use ecological and natural methods of cultivation. Working the soil is an integral part of our labour, manual work is valued and the harvest is carried out by hand. Our painstaking work, from cultivation in the vineyards to aging in the cellars, results in pure, rich wines of character, reflecting the terroirs of Vergisson. The Domaine produces four wines from Pouilly-Fuisse and one from Saint-Veran.
