Mercurey Rouge 'Les Vaux', Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson 2016
Created after the Second World War by Henri Jacqueson but now run by his son Paul (along with Paul's daughter Marie and son Pierre), this is one of the best estates in the Côte Chalonnaise, with 13 hectares of beautifully situated low-yielding vines, many of which are very old and all of which are harvested by hand. The Mercurey 'Les Vaux' is vibrant, generous and elegant, with sweet raspberry/cherry fruit, some slightly earthy/spicy notes with fine tannins and a fresh, lively finish.
