86 points "- Dec 92 - Faiveley has produced five cuvees of Mercurey. All of them are at least very good, and three of them could be considered excellent, perhaps even outstanding. The lightest cuvee is the 1990 Mercurey-Croix Jacquelet. This excellent wine reveals a deep ruby color, a big, sweet nose of red currants, wonderful ripeness, crisp acidity for focus, and a medium-bodied, fleshy finish. It should drink well for the next 5-7 years. While most of the attention is focused on Faiveley's extensive premier cru and grand cru offerings from the Cote de Nuits, this firm does a superlative job in the Cote Chalonnais and the Cote de Beaune. The 1990s merit considerable interest, not only for their quality, but also for the price/quality rapport several of them offer.
