What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
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.
Focus On: Burgundy
Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.
While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
Haven’t had it yet
This one was exceptionally good. Interesting flavors and very easy to drink. I ordered more.
Such concentration! Dusty spice box, dark cherry, white pepper, cedar, light licorice — all wrapped together in a tight core of deliciousness, buoyed by fresh acidity. It shows its 1er Cru pedigree but isn’t too stuffy for sipping on all night long,
