From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
In Mercurey, a village nestled in Burgundy on the famous Côte Chalonnaise, the Michel Julliot Estate, which has existed for four generations, cultivates 30 hectares of vines producing a large selection of the best “climats” and expositions that Mercurey has to offer (South & South-East) as well as several Côte de Beaune Crus. Michel's grandfather (Laurent's great-grandfather) was even responsible for determining some of the boundaries of Mercurey. As Michel and son, Laurent Juillot’s wines are referenced by a great number of Michelin starred restaurants and guaranteed by the many prizes and medals they have been awarded, the Estate’s production singularly demonstrates a philosophy of quality upheld by a family of winemakers who not only admire but also respects their terroir.
Tasting Notes: A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off rustic aromas of both red and dark pinot fruit laced with hints of warm earth and the sauvage. The nicely rich and attractively textured medium weight flavors possess fine volume for a wine at this level, all wrapped in a lingering, complex and slightly warm finale.
