Wow this was delicious perfect for a late winter Sunday night meal of roasted chicken with an orange and Bayleaf sauce over Carolina gold rice ❤️❤️ The nose on this wine was amazing: all red fruit and prettiness and the palate followed through just the same... hard to not guzzle 😂

The 04' is giving it's all right now. Incredibly perfumed with brambly berries and Earth. Acid and fruit nicely integrated and firm but elegant tannins add depth and structure. Excellent and has plenty more in the tank.

The perfume Reminds me of Chambolle! 2014 was perhaps a better year for Cote Chalonnaise than it was for the Côte d'Or. This Mercurey easily competes with the village level and premier cru pinot Noirs from the Côte d'Or.

The masculine muscular wine. Tight but lots of potential.

One of my personal favorite #Burgundy regions, Mercurey. Aubert & Pamela de Villaine's 2011 'Les Montots'--this dusty, truffled, earthy genius was really so pretty. Needs a wee bit of time to open up, but the cheery lil cherry bits sure were tasty! #ShadowsintheVineyard tasting. #certifiablydelish
