Characteristics of the wine:The vines, lying directly above the “Clos des Montaigus” 1er cru, give this Mercurey a brilliant, bright red color with numerous ruby reflections. On the nose, we can distinguish a rich composition of red fruits, first fresh, with an evocation of redcurrant and raspberry, then candied. The palate is both lively and supple in the attack, then reveals notes of red fruits and spices.
Food and wine pairing: To taste with grilled lamb chops.
