Domaine Meix Foulot Mercurey 1er Cru Les Veleys French Red Burgundy Wine 1500 mL

$109.99

The Domaine Meix Foulot has been in the hands of the de Launay family for multiple generations. Paul de Launay took the reins during the 1960s and began to bottle an increasingly important percentage of the wine produced at the domaine. Now, in the mid-1990s, his daughter, Agnes, joined the domaine and is now solely responsible for this exceptionally beautiful and historic domaine. This is one of the most picturesque of Burgundian domaines: situated high on a hill overlooking the entirety of Mercurey and surrounded by the gently sloping vineyards of the estate. The Domaine Meix Foulot is also one of the most important domaines in Mercurey, in terms both of size and excellence, with an imposing collection of vineyards that capture the full range of this underappreciated appellation.

Description

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.  We consistently request that this cuvée be bottled in magnum.
