Aromas of white pepper and marjoram sprinkled across greengage and yellow plums. The palate is engagingly open and ample, but with just enough acidity to counter the ripe Golden Delicious dominated fruit. Quite a lot of “matière”, and exuberant rather than precise, will give a lot of early drinking pleasure.

Aromas of white pepper and marjoram sprinkled across greengage and yellow plums.  The palate is engagingly open and ample, but with just enough acidity to counter the ripe Golden Delicious dominated fruit.  Quite a lot of “matière”, and exuberant rather than precise, will give a lot of early drinking pleasure.

As Burgundy becomes ever more expensive, thankfully Chalonnais winemakers in the south have risen to the challenge of fulfilling the need for more affordable, delicious wines. François Raquillet, the 11th generation of grape growers in Mercurey, is widely recognised as the best producer in the village.

He has 10 hectares of superbly sited, mostly old, vines and believes in low yields, mature (rather than super-ripe) fruit and a severe selection at the table de tri. The depth, richness and concentration which characterise his wines are a result of this, rather than any over extraction.
