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 average age of the vines is now around 20 years. The wine is richly purple-ruby, the nose fresh, ripe and open. Palate has splendidly bright fruit concentration, with fine texture and excellent potential. Tannins are moderate and well-ripened, needing a couple of years to soften (for drinking 2021-2029+).
