The village of Mercurey lies in the southern part of Burgundy, just south of the famous vineyards of Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet. Mercurey boasts a number of superior premier (1er) crus that are often blended together rather than labeled as individual vineyards.
Mercurey remains a source of relative value compared to the Pinot producing villages to the north in Burgundy's famed "Côte d'Or," where prices have skyrocketed due to global demand and small vintages.
Red and black cherries, spice, and autumnal flavors all swirl around in the glass. In a word: beautiful. This would make a memorable bottle to share with friends and family over the holidays. If only all wines came across as this effortless...
100% Pinot Noir. Serve cool.
