It's not often that you find a premier cru Burgundy of this quality at this price. I still can't quite believe it. Beautifully balanced, with a silken texture and subtly ripe flavors of plum and cherries, the 2009 Faiveley Mercurey "Clos des Myglands" would make any Burgundy lover very happy.
Erwan Faiveley, the seventh generation of his family to run Domaine Faiveley, hit it out of the park with this one. Drink it with a roast chicken, skirt steak or veal schnitzel. It actually would go with almost anything, including salmon or tuna. Or dress it up with a bow and bring it to a holiday dinner party.
Price: $30 to $40
Style: Fresh and lively
What it goes with: Roast chicken, skirt steak, schnitzel, salmon or tuna.
