Côte Chalonnaise

Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos de l'Evêque" 2019

Pinot noir 75cl

The Mercurey appellation is part of the Côte Chalonnaise vineyards and is one of the most important wine appellations in Burgundy. Indeed, it covers more than 400 hectares and was appreciated by Gabrielle d'Estrée, mistress of Henri IV. The Appellation owes its name to the god of commerce and messenger of the gods in Roman mythology, Mercury.

Dégustation : Our Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos de l'Evêque" 2019 has a beautiful ruby colour with purple tints. On the nose, it reveals aromas of red and black fruits, typical of its grape variety, as well as floral notes. This wine reveals a greedy and fruity mouth with abundant aromas of red fruits. The finish is mineral and supported by fine tannins.

Vinification

Fermentation

The grapes are sorted and then de-stemmed, and transported to the vat with the help of belts, always with the aim of having a whole grape, not crushed. We proceed to a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. During this phase, the aromas of the grapes and components such as anthocyanins are released. Then comes the fermentation during which we proceed to daily pigeage to extract the matter, the tannins. Vatting lasts between 18 and 20 days.

Note de presse

James Suckling
88/100 | mai 2022

Sleek and crisp with bright cranberry and redcurrant fruit, this starts out on the light side, then the rather dry tannins come through and give it some depth and grip. Quite a traditional style. Drink or hold.
