Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : In the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, South of Côte de Beaune, the vineyards of Mercurey are mainly planted with Pinot Noir. Located mid slope, facing South-East.
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine.
Tasting : Beautiful ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with an array of spices. Concentrated and well-structured. Well-integrated tannins. A lot of volume and a long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, and a wide variety of French cheeses.
