Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : In the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, South of Côte de Beaune, the vineyards of Mercurey are mainly planted with Pinot Noir. Located mid slope, facing South-East.
The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced crunchy red wines with very pure aromas.
Tasting : Beautiful ruby colour with crimsons nuances. Flavours of raspberry with toasty and spicy aromas. Concentrated and generous. Beautiful tannic structure with good persistence.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, and a wide variety of French cheeses.
