2014 Mercurey 1er Cru "La Chassière"
Awaiting Tasting Note
`This is aromatically more elegant still with its cool mix of essence of red cherry, sandalwood, spice and tea-scented nose. The lacy, refined and precise flavors possess a lilting mouth feel yet despite the elegance they don`t lack for authority and particularly so on the balanced and wonderfully long finish. This is a Mercurey 1er of finesse.` 91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.com
`Let`s face it, Mercurey isn`t the most charming of Burgundy villages but here is a version that`s invitingly fruity with a shadow of smokiness to add extra intrigue plus finely grained tannins and a pretty lift of cherry fruit to finish. What`s not to charm? Goes with boeuf bourguignon, duck and mild game.` 91 points, The Wine Gang, Sept 2017
