The Mercurey appellation is part of the vineyards of the Côte Chalonnaise and is one of the main wine names in
Burgundy. Indeed, it covers more than 400 hectares and was valued by Gabrielle d'Estrée, mistress of Henri IV. The
name takes its name from the god of commerce and messenger of the gods in Roman mythology, Mercury.
Immediately after the manual harvest, the grapes are sorted, destemmed and then carefully transported on a belt in the barrel, without pumping. For the fermentation, a cold maceration is carried out at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. The wine is aged for 12-15 months in oak barrels, 25% of which are new oak barrels.
The Prosper Maufoux Mercurey is a 100% pinot noir and has the typical intense ruby red color with purple hues. The wine has an appealing nose with notes of small black fruits such as blackberry and dark cherry. The taste is fruity and toasty, rich with silky and elegant tannins, with a silky slightly creamy finish in the aftertaste. As we advise with a lot of red wine, but certainly with Pinot Noirs, the motto is not to drink it too hot (14-15°) and to serve it in a large Burgundy glass .
