Tasting notes

Mercurey 1er cru "Les Veleys" opens with a lovely expression of citrus followed by white fruits aromas and creamy notes in the background. Lively, rich, and complex attack with intense flavours of lemon in the palate. Great acidity and a very long mineral finish.

Burgundy

Moderate continental climate

Domaine François Raquillet

The soils in Macon and the Côte Chalonnaise share some common characteristics - Jurassic limestone soils dominant. In some villages, some soils assemblages content a high level of clay while others are Jurassic assemblages where hard limestones and softer marls alternate. Variations in the Mâconnais landform has led to more diversity of soils like brown limestone, clayey, and sandy soils mixed with sandstone pebbles. Vines growing around Solutré are rooted in red marls that have been covered with limestone scree.
