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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense and fresh aromas of ripe raspberries and strawberries mixed with liquorice Well-balanced and well-structured. Very pure fruit. Well-integrated tannins. Refreshing and persistent aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, and a wide variety of French cheeses.
