2016 Mercurey Blanc (Vieille Fontaine, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Vieille Fontaine, Mercurey Blanc, Burgundy, France 2016

{sustainable} 100% Chardonnay

CRISP PEAR & MEYER LEMON, LIVELY TOAST & WAXY RICHNESS, BRIGHT & FULL

Burgundy’s Côte Chalonnaise, sandwiched between the Côte d’Or (to the north) and Mâconnais (to the south), while perhaps less familiar than its neighbors, is nevertheless home to exceptional appellations whose output seldom disappoints. Chief among these is Mercurey, the origin of some of the absolute best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to be encountered in this price range. Vieille Fontaine, a relatively young estate in the capable hands of David Déprés, is producing fiercely classical wines with assertive structure and longevity, and this may be our favorite so far.

Serving Suggestion: Poached rainbow trout w/ dijon-dill sauce & a squeeze of lemon. Spinach & asparagus quiche w/ gruyere.
