Louis Latour Mercurey, Cote Chalonnaise, France, 2015
Grape / Blend
100% Pinot Noir
Mercurey, Côte Chalonnaise, France
The name of Mercurey and its reputation as a viticultural commune date from the period when the Roman legions erected a temple there to Mercury, their God of Commerce and Trade amongst other things. As regards the character of the wine, Mercurey possesses an individual appeal despite obvious parallels with the Côte de Beaune. Typically, it has a penetrating, earthy fruitiness allied to an ample backbone with plenty of grip on the palate.
With an intense ruby colour, the Mercurey 2015 unveils aromas of wild-strawberry, mocha, and undergrowth. On tasting, it is very elegant and fresh with grilled noted and smooth tannins.
