Domaine Meunier Mercurey Rouge
Domaine Gaëlle et Jérôme Meunier
From the importer:
What Gaëlle and Jérôme look for in wine is purity of fruit. This comes from two parcels, each with a surface of about two-thirds of an acre, and each with an average vine age of 60 years. They prune these vines diligently in order to get good ripeness so that they don’t have to chaptalize (sometimes they do, but more often than not they don’t).
Ferments are spontaneous, aging in barrel is a short eleven months, and use of new wood for their village Mercury represents 10% of the total. This wine is what savory Burgundian Pinot Noir is all about. Production averages 150 cases.
