Born into a line of ten generations of winemakers, François Raquillet took over the 10 hectare estate in Mercurey in 1990 with his wife Emmanuelle. All grapes are hand-harvested and manually sorted once they arrive at the winery. The fruit undergoes maceration at cool temperatures in concrete vessels, where natural fermentation occurs. The wine is then transferred half to tank and half to barrel to settle. After ten months is is bottled. The wine is very alive in the mouth, with structured yet simple cherry fruit. The firm tannins and nice backbone balance the secondary wave of fruit flavors at the back of raspberry and blueberry. A focused wine, with a nice precise finish.
