Mercurey 'La Plante Chassey' 2014
Mercurey La Plante Chassey is composed of 45-80-year-old vines. Pinot Noir and a tiny amount of Pinot Beurot. Hand-harvested and destemmed before pressed. Fermented in wood and then matured in neutral oak for about 18 months. No filtration. Dominque used to make barrels, but he never uses new wood. The wine is loaded with cherry pit, orange peel & wild herbs. The palate delivers zesty red berry fruit, orange pulp & carries mineral-infused herbaceous along to the elegant, lingering finish.
