Mercurey is located in the Côte Chalonnaise and produces well structured and pure, fruit driven reds with a distinctive underlying earthiness. Their relative low price when compared with wines from the more famous Côte d’Or appellations makes them good value for money.
On the nose, this wine reveals floral notes like roses with a slight spice. The palate is light in body with ripe, light tannins and balanced acidity. Notes of blackberry and hints of hedgerow foliage and wild herbs are revealed. Overall a delicate and enjoyable Pinot Noir with good fruit intensity, freshness and a smooth finish.
