Tasting notes

Mercurey Vieilles Vignes shows lovely notes of red fruits and red berries on the nose, with lovely hints of spice in the background. Lively, complex and elegant attack with a great intensity and refined flavours of strawberries. Clean and refreshing notes in the long finish.

France

Burgundy

Burgundy wine region is located in central-east of France. Burgundy wines comes from multi sub-regions, each with its own particular character, each with its own particular climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir represent here the two key grape varieties for the production of some of the most exclusive Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines in the world.

Domaine François Raquillet

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.
