Mercurey 2016 Red - Old Vines

  • Complex

  • Powerful

  • Mineral

  • Fruity

  • Woody

The largest appellation of Burgundy in area with more than 600 hectares, the Mercurey rouge is often compared to the Pommard for its solid and structured profile... But there are many different Mercurey depending on the place said and the producers.

Here, a Mercurey from the place called "La Pidancerie" hand-picked that privileges the delicacy and expression of wine, on a splendid 2016 vintage that gives pride of place to the fruit.

This red Mercurey 2016 offers a fruity and at the same time structured side. The tannins are present and contribute to the power of a wine already very pleasant thanks to the beautiful maturity and the ideal sanitary condition of the grapes.

The Mercurey Rouge from Domaine le Meix de la Croix is a wine aged in oak sibles for 18 months, precisely and delicately: the woody remains discreet, brings material and aromas but does not mask the wine.

The keeping of this Mercurey wine will be possible for another 4 to 6 years.

Service temperature: 15 to 16 degrees

Wine Characteristics


Red: their colour is a deep, profound ruby. This crisp-fruited wine evokes strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. Age brings in notes of underbrush, spicy tobacco notes and cocoa beans. In the mouth this wine is rich, full-bodied, and chewy. In its youth, the tannins of this wine lend it a mineral firmness.


When aged, it is attractively rounded and meaty.
White: a typical Chardonnay gold, it varies in its degree of paleness and is flecked with green. It boasts aromas of white flowers (mayflower, acacia), hazelnut, almond, and spices (cinnamon, pepper). A touch of flint is a trademark of this wine. Full of flavour, it is an eminently drinkable wine.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: rich, meaty and solidly put together, Mercurey, secure in its position among the royalty of wines, brings out the best from beef rib steaks, or joints of beef or lamb, braised or in sauce. Roast pork is well suited to its rich aromas, as are poultry-based stews. Exotic dishes likewise prove worthy partners for this wine. As for the cheeseboard, this wine harmonizes equally well with either mild, soft cheeses or aged versions.
Serving temperatures: 14 to 15°C for young wines,
15 to 16°C for older wines.


White: its spicy and floral bouquet and juicy appeal destin it to partner grilled fish or fish in sauce, cooked seafood, asian cuisine, and hard cheeses. White Mercurey can also make a wonderful pre-dinner drink.
Serving temperature: 11 to 13°C.
 

Situation

Mercurey, situated in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise (12 kilometres from Chalon-sur-Saône) is one the foremost appellations of Bourgogne. Protected from moisture-bearing winds, tucked away in its hillsides or stretched along the aptly-named “Golden Valley” the vineyards stretch as far as the neighbouring village of Saint-Martin-sous-Montaigu. The AOC status was instituted in 1923.
Reunited by means of the Brotherhood of the Chanteflûte, created in 1971, the local winemakers are dedicated to enjoying the wines of Mercurey and promoting them to the world.
 

Terroirs

The vines grow at heights of 230 to 320 metres. They spread over marls and marly calcic soils of Oxfordian limestone. On the eastern side, they grow in calcic and marly soils. In the west crystalline Jurassic rocks are overlain by gravels. Part of the vineyards belong to the Bathonien. On these white limey soils and red clays, the vines are truly at home.
