Additional Product Information

A lovely Mercurey Blanc 1. Cru with a complex concentrated smooth palate full of fruit and citric flavors well balance and structured. With a very interesting aromatic profile that unravels to present white flowers and citric notes. It is a subtle and refreshingly elegant white wine. The optimum serving temperature is 12°C. It pairs nicely with fish, shellfish and white meat.

A rare and unique white wine it only represents 2% of the local production which is based on red wine. The vineyard is planted on clay soil which gives this Mercurey Blanc 1. Cru special characteristics. The grapes are manually harvested at peak maturity and the fermentation is carried out in vats. It ages 1 year on lees which allows it to develop a creamy texture. The grapes come from a 35 year old vineyard with very low yields.
