François Raquillet, the 11th generation of grape growers in Mercurey, has 10 hectares of superbly sited, mostly old, vines. He believes in low yields, mature (rather than super-ripe) fruit and a severe selection at the sorting table. The depth, richness and concentration which characterise his wines are a result of this, rather than any over extraction.

 

The Mercurey Blanc “La Brigadière” is a delicious revelation, from 25 year old vines and vinified in 400ltr. demi-muids (20% new).

 

The wine is pale straw in appearance with a taut, mineral driven nose reflecting the limestone soils of the vineyards. The palate is full and dry with notes of dried fruits and honey. A wine of great finesse rather than power.
