Mercurey Veilles Vignes Francois Raquillet

Region
Mercurey, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy
Vintage:
2016
Producer:
Francois Raquillet
Grapes:
Pinot Noir
Wine Description:

Produced from old vines, 65+ years in age. Wisps of menthol and the sauvage are present on the liqueur-like aromas of dark cherry and raspberry along with a background nuance of earth. This is an excellent vintage that should drink well both young and with half-a-dozen years of age.

Tasting Note:

Attractively savoury nose of wild berries, smoked duck and earthy forest floor notes introduces a supple, silky palate with ripe tannins and a juicy core of fruit. Delicious.
