Domaine Ninot Mercurey Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2014 75cl
100% Pinot Noir from this brother and sister team in Burgundys Cote Chalonnaise. The Cote Chalonnaise is just south of the more famous Cote de Beaune. In the Chalonnaise there is not just one hill as there is in the Cote dOr but a myriad of hills. If you happen upon a good grower here like Erell Ninot you will discover the wonders of Burgundian Pinot Noir.Ê The vines used for this wine are over 70 years old and the yield a meagre 35 hectolitres per hectare. Cherry red in colour with notes of black and red berry fruit on the nose. A round and supple wine with a firm structure and fine tannins. Complex yet delicate and of course balanced. A good example of savoury red Burgundy at a very fair price.
