Les Heritiers Saint-Genys Mercurey Rouge 1er Cru Clos Marcilly (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Burgundy is renowned for a jigsaw of small plots, fitting side by across the rolling cotes and cru with many different owners - the result of equal inheritance. While some heirs want to make wine, others prefer to live their lives elsewhere, meaning their plots go unloved. Enter Patrice du Jeu, a Parisian restaurateur with the dynamism and energy to revive such plots. Together with family and friends, he managed to buy several parcels in excellent terroirs of the Côte de Beaune including Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet and Mercurey. Joining with white Burgundy expert Jean-Baptise Alinc the wines of these heirs - Les Héritiers - are both technically competent and beautifully crafted.
Les Héritiers Saint-Genys Mercurey Rouge 1er Cru Clos Marcilly wine is a beautiful interpretation of this exceptional terroir. Showing great evolution, bitter cherry Mercurey at its best. Deep ruby red colour, shiny with purplish reflections and a very pretty nose revealing spicy and fruity aromas with a very wide aromatic palette. This red would work well with game, ideally pot roasted pheasant, but could also cut through pan fried duck or a festive roast goose.
