Mercurey 1ers crus Clos L’Evêque

With 21 hectares on a east-facing slope, Clos l’Evêque is one of the biggest Mercurey 1er Cru. Its fairly light-coloured soil is created by limestone gravel deposits. The wines derived from it are typically very fine and fairly feminine in character. Our Clos l’Evêque discloses notes of tart red berries, Morello cherries and redcurrants. It is a well-honed, precise and delicate wine with a mineral finish.

The vines from one of the top premier cru vineyards are old but the soil has nourished grapes since before the Romans. Today's old vines give a wine that is rich, generous and full of black-cherry flavors. A streak of minerality adds complexity to this juicy wine. Drink from 2021.

Vin floral, avec une jolie structure. Sa finesse est délicate et chocolatée. C’est un premier cru intéressant.

Notes de griottes au nez. Texture fine en bouche, avec des tanins soyeux et une finale sur l'élégance.

C’est un classique de l’appellation, droit, un tantinet austère, une finale crayeuse. Il faut l’attendre.

The name, which translates as the Bishop's vineyard, obviously has an ecclesiastical origin and is also a fine piece of land. It has produced a ripe wine packed with juicy red-cherry fruits that offers a balanced edge of tannins. Fruity and still young, the wine will be ready to drink from 2021.

Ce premier cru rubis étincelant dévoile un nez riche et puissant de petits fruits rouges agrémentés de nuances de caramel. La bouche se révèle dense, soyeuse, ronde et concentrée, avec du fond et beaucoup de fraîcheur, ce qui n'était pas évident dans ce millésime chaud et solaire. Une grande réussite.

Souple, aérien et délicat, il est de bonne facture. Dans un style à la fois droit et séducteur.

The nose is like a bouquet of flowers, very taut, it shows a great deal of vivacity. Needs time.
