This is one of Mercurey’s greatest terroirs for red wine, and rightly classified a First Growth. The vineyard was carefully replanted over four years between 1996 and 1999, so all the vines are now over 20 years old. They must have put their roots down deep, for this is superb. It has been ageing 25% in new oak barrels. Colour is deep purple, the nose very perfumed, clean and fresh. The attack is round and rich, showing fine tannins, balanced by impressive fruitiness and bright length (for drinking 2023-2030+).
