About

Product Description:

"Tucked into the limestone-laden, green hills of Mercurey, lies the 12 hectare estate of François Raquillet. Just south of Chassagne Montrachet, Mercurey in the hands of François becomes Burgundy with a much deeper level of complexity, concentration and age-worthiness than most of his peers. The combination of old vines, low yields and organic farming creates incredible aromatic complexity and a lush texture generally found only in wines with much greater price tags. The Mercurey 1er cru Blanc 2016 is the product of 60 year old Chardonnay vines, rooted in one mineral limestone hillside vineyard. Vinified entirely in oak." -Winery
