Mercurey Veilles Vignes Francois Raquillet
- Mercurey, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy
- Francois Raquillet
- Pinot Noir
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.
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.
