From 40 to 50 year old Pinot Noir vines from the Prmier Cru Clos Du Roy vineyard in the Cote Chalonnaie. With 14 month oak aging this Mercurey from Domaine Tupinier-Bautista has an 11 hectare estate and shows the great value found in central Burgundy.
Soft bramble and Cherry fruit with gentle oak. This wine is very easy to drink now but will develop further complexity over the next couple of years.
