Mercurey 1er Cru "Les Combins"

With its surface area of 1,600 acres, 85 "village" appellations and 32 Premier Crus, Mercurey is the largest appellation in the Côte Chalonnaise.
The name of this vineyard is probably derived from a reference to the areas slightly hilly topography.


The nose is redolent of scents of red fruit (cherry, raspberry...) and spices and also reveals a certain wild aspect. Very flavourful on the palate, bold and straightforward, boasting dense structure supported by nice tannins, and mineral undertones that lend pleasing freshness.
