MERCUREY BLANC 2018 - Domaine Thierry Garrey

The white Mercurey is less known and especially less widespread than its red counterpart: about 600 hectares of Pinot Noir planted compared to less than 200 for Chardonnay on this appellation of southern Burgundy. But chardonnay plantations are progressing, as the results in white Mercuryy are often surprising and generally very successful.

Here, a hand-picked white Mercurey that favours the delicacy and expression of wine, on a splendid 2018 vintage that gives pride of place to the fruit.

This 2018 white Mercurey offers a fruity and structured side. a young wine but already very pleasant thanks to the beautiful maturity and the ideal sanitary condition of the grapes.

Domaine Garrey's white Mercurey is a wine aged in oak casks for more than 6 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.
