Mercurey is the most important village in the Cote Chalonnaise in Burgundy, and the producer of as much as two-thirds of that district’s wine. These wines have lower permitted yields and tend to be somewhat fuller and more serious than those of their neighbors. Most of the production consists of red wines made from Pinot Noir, though a little white wine from Chardonnay is made as well. This is one of those appellations that easily refute the charge that there is no value in Burgundy.

    A touch minty on the nose at first, then this displays more of smoky, earthy note with subtle notes of meaty, dark berry fruit framed with notes of rust, vanilla, and dried ginger. Smooth, fairly rich and polished with a real fine core of nervous acidity supporting earthy and slightly leather burnished cherry fruit. Theres a lovely dark soil ton... Read More
