MERCUREY CLOS DU ROY 1 ER CRU ROUGE


Mercurey Clos du Roy 1er Cru Rouge is one of many vineyards in Burgundy carrying the name Clos du Roy thanks to the King designating his best parcels as such. The parcel sits close to the woods and is protected from the wind with excellent exposure, providing consistent ripeness. The wine receives a ten-day cold soak before fermentation and is vinified with 50% whole clusters. Mercurey Clos du Roy 1er Cru Rouge is aged in 100% used 228-liter barrels.

A pure and fresh scent of tart cranberry and wild raspberry rises from the glass. The palate of this wine makes the fruit more intense, adds a smokier, more sonorous flavor, while the body remains slender and translucent. Deep juiciness underpins it all and underlines both elegance and unforced balance. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
