Mercurey blanc
"En Pierrelet"


Small terrace with a clayey-limestone soil showing limestone predominance. South-east exposed, the vines are located just behind the Château.

Winemaking and Aging

Grapes are harvested by hand, sorted out and pressed in a pneumatic press. Alcoholic fermentation and aging take place 100% in oak barrels with 20% new barrels during 12 month. Malolactic fermentation is 100% realised. Wine is bottled in Traditional Burgundy bottles. The cork is marked with the estate's name and the vintage.

Tasting notes

The wine is showing a pretty yellow gold colour with green tints. It is limpid and bright.
On the nose we easily point the lime aromas with grapefruit and firestone. We feel a strong mineralety with an enjoyable freshness.
The palate is full and creamy supporting notes of salted butter, viennoiseries and citrus.
Balanced and harmonious, you will stay with the wine for a while.

Food and wine pairings

The Mercurey Blanc 'En Pierrelet" 2011 will perfectly match with sea foods, fishes in a sauce, spiced white meats and fresh cheeses.

Service and cellaring

It can be served from now at 12-14° C or kept in cellar between 3 and 5 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.
