2016 Mercurey Rouge (Vieille Fontaine, Domaine de la)

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

{sustainable} 100% Pinot Noir

BLACK CHERRY & PLUM, EARTHY MYSTIQUE & BRIGHT MINERALITY

The Mercurey region's name may evoke wingfooted messengers or sun scorched planets, but it’s actually one of the most celebrated areas within central Burgundy’s Cote Chalonnaise. David Déprés works the 40-70 year old vines in the three acres of his small estate which fall within the Mercurey appellation to produce this elegant, vibrant, and ageworthy example of Pinot Noir. Firm yet fine in the tannin department and shimmering with cherry and plum, this is a wine which finds its very Burgundian mark somewhere between earthy intrigue and a freshness of firm fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Round roast w/ roasted plums & collard greens w/ thyme & garlic. Mushroom paté.
