The wine features a near-transparent hue, with good intensity and a deep garnet red tint. Its powerful and complex bouquet exudes fragrances of well-ripened berries and black fruits. Notes of cherry and morello cherry are also easily detected. This Mercurey also gives off a very pleasant and balanced woody aroma. A mellow taste, quite elegant and subtle. The scents associated with the nose remain intact on the palate. The tannins are noticeable but well incorporated into the body of the wine.
Once conveyed to the tank, the grapes are all destemmed. The vinification step, performed under strictly-controlled temperature, lasts 8 to 12 days depending on the vintage. The wines are initially fermented in vats and then racked into barrels for a period varying roughly between 9 months and a year. Bottling takes place 18 months after harvest.
