Category Red Wine
Region France, Burgundy, Mercurey
Brand Vignerons de Buxy
Alcohol/vol 13%
Deep red with ruby glints, this racy wine has pleasant aromas of red fruits backed by a firm but elegant tannic structure becoming more supple when matured. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry gradually give way to underbrush, spices (tobacco) and leather. Pleasantly round and very firm, this is a powerful, meaty wine. Accompaniment: Served as a dinner wine, this bottle accompanies traditional cuisine such as stewed meats and vegetables, grilled meat, beef ribs or steak, meat fondue, roasted or stewed lamb, gratins, and cheeses. Enjoy the youthfulness and fruitiness of this wine, or wait five to eight years to taste its mature flavour.

The ripeness of Mercurey in this vintage is very apparent in this rich, smooth and soft wine. Juicy red fruits dominate, backed by a core of tannins and the spice from wood aging. It is a wine with a good medium-term future. Drink from 2019.
