Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted
out by hand. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's
extraction. Grapes are previously partially destemmed. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use pigeages (punching the cap) and/or pumping-over.
Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes
and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts

After maceration, free and presswines are separated for aging.
Aging process is taking place 70% in traditional Burgundian 228 litersbarrels and 30% in stainless steel vats during 12 months. We use around 10% of new barrels.
We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.

Tasting notes

Beautiful garnet colour, clear and shiny.

After aeration, the nose reveals small red fruits
aromas (raspberry and redcurrant).

On the palate, the wine is juicy, generous and
perfectly balanced by a great freshness.

Food and wine pairings

Our Mercurey Rouge 2019 will perfectly match with red meats, tartar and delicatessen.

Service and cellaring

It can be served from now at 13-14°C or kept in cellar for 5 to 10 years.

Art of tasting

Owning great wines in your cellar is not enough, you also need to know how to serve them.
Température is an essential element, around 53-57° F for the white and 55-59°F for the red. And if you don't have the right tasting glass which will amplify the wines's aromas, you may considerably reduce your tasting pleasure.
A great glass gives a large ventilation surface to the wine and a tightening neck, which allow the nose to grasp more easily the richness and the complexity of a great wine.
