Happy Thursday Day you have successfully made it past the midway point of week. Today's wine is the 2015 Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Pinot Noir.

The nose gives us cherry, strawberry, raspberry, vanilla, coconut, rose petals, green tomatoes, cinnamon, wet leaves and earth.

On the palate I am getting tart cherry, tart, strawberry, cranberry, red raspberry, vanilla, coconut, rose petals, an iron minerality and dusty earth.

The wine is medium light in body with medium acidity, medium to + smooth soft tannin that leads into a medium finish. Please stay safe because the weather seems to be very unpredictable this season. Have a great rest of your week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

Juicy, fresh and ripe. With strawberries, wet rock and herbal undertones, great intro into the 2015 vintage

2012 vintage. Really great nose. Light in body but with great hints of black pepper and dark cherry.

2012 vintage. Well, if all non-pricey Burgundies would carry the same precision as this one, then we'd all be winners. Light, fragrant, fresh and made to be enjoyed now, but there's enough stuffing here to merit a few years of cellaring as well

Great vintage. Hint of spice, earthy notes tart cherry. A classic.

Intriguing nose, light on its feet but nice flavor town
