Mercurey Clos Rochette Blanc Blle 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good pale green-tinged color. Pure aromas of pineapple and wet stone, with a fusel, riesling-like smokiness. Dense, sweet and tactile, with a saline minerality and floral high notes giving this unusual character and complexity for its appellation (Hervet describes this southeast-facing slope as "like a little Corton-Charlemagne"). Finishes long and brisk, with a distinct white soil quality...89-92" IWC 09/09
