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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors and meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture.
Tasting : Beautiful ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe cherries and strawberry jam mixed with liquorice. Concentrated and well-balanced. Dense with a very pure fruit. Well-integrated tannins. Generous and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, and a wide variety of French cheeses.
