FAIVELEY Mercurey 1er cru Clos du Roy 2017

92 Points

Aromas of licorice, cassis, dark berries fruits and subtle spices preface Faiveley's 2017 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy, a medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured and attractively layered wine that's deeper and more reserved than the Clos des Myglands, meriting a couple of years' bottle age.
