Mercurey 1ers crus Les Naugues

The terroir of Les Naugues produces a concentrated and powerful wine, able to age over many years.  South-facing and planted on a subsoil of limestone marl, the hillside plot ripens fairly early.

Wood aging on this rich wine has given a smooth, lightly spicy texture. That combines with the rounded black fruits to produce a wine that is dense, silky and likely to age well. Drink from 2022.

Sanguin, direct, le fruit est mûr et confituré. La finale s’exprime sur le poivre noir. C’est bien fait.

Nez concentré sur la cerise noire et les épices. Superbe bouche avec un fruit sucré, des tanins élégants et charnus.

Ripe and dense, this fruit and wood-flavored wine is bold and rich. The black fruits and tannins will allow the wine to mature. A concentrated, limited-production wine, it will take a while to mature. Wait until 2023.

Un fruité gourmand, mûr, on croque dans les petits fruits rouges. Très charpenté et carré

Light appearance, heather and wild flower aromas, Very light and delicate in style. Savoury, floral finish.

14/20 — At his best: between 2016 and 2020

(millésime: 2014)

Very mature, nice body with plenty of length. Needs some time as it is still showing the toasting of the barrel.

14/20 — At his best: from 2016 to 2020
