Mercurey 1er Cru rouge
Made from the Pinot Noir grapes.
Located in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey is one of the most important appellations in Burgundy. Protected from wind and humidity by the hillsides, the vineyard ranges from 230 to 320 meters in altitude.
Calcareous and loam clay soils, which are particularly suited to the Pinot Noir.
Long aging period in oak barrels.
Deep red with ruby glints, this racy wine has pleasant aromas of red fruits backed by a firm but elegant tannic structure becoming more supple when matured. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry gradually give way to underbrush, spices (tobacco) and leather. Pleasantly round and very firm, this is a powerful, meaty wine.
Served as a dinner wine, this bottle accompanies traditional cuisine such as stewed meats and vegetables, grilled meat, beef ribs or steak, meat fondue, roasted or stewed lamb, gratins, and cheeses.
Enjoy the youthfulness and fruitiness of this wine, or wait five to eight years to taste its mature flavour.
Best consumed eight years after harvest.
Serving temperature between16 and 18°C.
Available in bottle, half bottle, and magnum bottles.
