WINEMAKER NOTES

Mercurey is the 3rd largest village vineyard of Burgundy after Chablis and Gevrey-Chambertin. Its wines are floral and mineral, well balanced with little oak.

TASTING NOTES

A fresh and developed nose. On the palate, a good attach with mineral and white flower aromas. Dry white wine with a good acidity balance and a pleasant finish. A touch of spice, tangy orange peel, and plenty of acidity at the end.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

It is best drunk fresh, at 8-10 degrees Celsius, with poultry, shellfish, or seafood.
