Description
  • White wine represents only 5% of the plantings in Mercurey but it is a very significant proportion. Mercurey blanc has a taut mineral edginess to it that marries well with the ample apple and butter notes. The acidity is crisp and it is a wine that should be drunk within a few years of bottling.

    Pale yellow in the glass, the nose is clean and fresh with notes of almonds and flowers. Round in the mouth with citrusy, lively acidity on the back-palate. Nice balance.
