Winery information:

The name of Mercurey and its reputation as a viticultural commune date from the period when the Roman legions erected a temple there to Mercury, their God of Commerce and Trade amongst other things. As regards the character of the wine, Mercurey possesses an individual appeal despite obvious parralels with the Côte de Beaune. Typically, it has a penetrating, earthy fruitiness allied to an ample backbone with plenty of grip on the palate.

The soil in the vineyards of Mercurey is of clay and limestone..

The average age of the vines are 25 years with an average yield of 45 hl/ha.

Harvested by hand.


Tasting Note:

Mercurey 2012 vt has a glossy rubis colour. Revealing an intense nose, the wine offers cherry aromas, lifted by undergrowth notes. Ample and supple on tasting, aromas of wild strawberry and liquorice release while tannins linger for an enjoyable finish.
