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 subtle smoky, leathery notes associated with expert winemaking.
Pinot Noir is known as the 'heartbreak grape' for good reason - its unforgiving thin skin makes farming and winemaking a nightmare for those who don't treat it properly. The Juillot family have clearly mastered the grape, and after four generations they continue to produce exceptionally high quality wines like this one.
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.
