Pinot Noir - Mercurey
|ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 13%||GRAPE: PINOT NOIR|
|VINTAGE: 2017||REGION: BURGUNDY, FRANCE|
A beautifully-made, elegant Pinot Noir from one of France's most reputable regions. This Mercurey delivers a winning combination of fresh red berry flavours and the smoky, subtle leathery notes associated with expert winemaking.
Pinot Noir is known as the 'heartbreak grape' for good reason - its unforgiving thin skin makes winemaking a nightmare for those who don't treat it properly. The Juillot family have clearly mastered the grape and, four generations in, continue to produce exceptional, high quality examples such as this.
Although very drinkable now, the wine has the capacity to age well so may be worth saving for a special occasion. Pairs brilliantly with game, creamy French cheeses and root vegetable dishes.
