Mercurey Rouge Premier Cru Les Veleys, Domaine Meix Foulot 2006

Stunning red Burgundy with precise, captivating flavors. When Mercurey is this good it embarrasses more expensive appellations to the north. The domaine owns some of the best vineyards in Mercurey and has been producing wines for several generations. The vineyards are planted with old vines on steep hills with sandy limestone soils. This Les Veleys is vin de garde quality capable of aging and giving pleasure for decades. Serious depth and length, with a powerful, muscular fruit. Packed with flavors of black cherries, sweet cinnamon, forest floor, and animal notes; and finishing with excellent length. Impressive.

"The 'Veleys' is situated on a steeply sloping, southeast facing vineyard with extremely low yields (averaging 35 hectoliters per hectare). This parcel is divided into four pieces: one part planted in 1983; a second planted in 1964; a third planted in 1957; and the oldest section planted in 1947. In its entirety, 'Les Veleys' encompasses 1.5 hectares with annual production of approximately 450 cases. For us, the 'Veleys' is the most classic representation of the terroir of Mercurey with strength, persistence and a hint of the 'animal'. It is certainly one of the longest-lived of the wines of this appellation." Neal Rosenthal, importer
