Description

Domaine Ninot Mercurey Vieilles Vignes 2019

Domaine Ninot Mercurey Vieilles Vignes is elegant and staggeringly fruit-forward. Cherry red colour with dark garnet hues. Pretty red fruit and violet floral aromas on the nose. The dry and medium-bodied palate is round with a juicy acidity and chewy tannins that support the fruity flavours immaculately. Bright raspberry and cranberry red fruit flavours with just a hint of blackberries and wet forest floor. 

100% Pinot Noir from 70-year-old vines in Domaine Ninot's certified organic vineyards in Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey, Burgundy. The vines grow on the hillside in clay-limestone soils. Each parcel of the estate follows rigorous specifications of viticultural practices with respect for the environment.

Manual harvesting  of the grapes and a severe sorting in the vineyard to keep only healthy grapes. Pressing and vatting as soon as possible.

Ageing potential: Drink now or within 15 years.
