2019 is a fresh and well-balanced vintage. Volumes are low although the quality is outstanding. Characterised by extreme weather conditions and perfectly healthy and aromatic grapes, 2019 saw weak rainfalls (-50% less than usual), several frosts spells in April/May followed by heatwave in summer. The harvests began on Monday 9 September in the Côte chalonnaise and came to an end on the 21 September in the Côte de Nuits.]
The name of this 1er cru, a monopole from Domaine Faiveley, most probably originates from the English “My Land”, the name given to this area by an English dignitary. This clos produces a powerful, direct and well-balanced wine.
The nose reveals notes of black and red fruits combined with subtle woody and smoky notes. The palate offers the same rich, fruity aromas as the nose. This full-bodied wine has a velvety tannic backbone which gives a sensation of warmth on the smooth finish.
