Domaine Corcia - Mercurey 1er Cru "Les Crets" 2021
The estate previously known as Domaine de la Vieille Fontaine, was taken over at the beginning of 2021 by the Corcia family. Alain Corcia is a successful négociant based in Savigny les Beaune, specialising in the marketing of great Burgundy wines for over 35 years. Raphael, the youngest son, is the key driver for the takeover of the domaine and is in charge of both the work in the vineyard and in the cellar. Raphael is bursting onto the scene with the 2021 vintage, showing his skills through reimagining the method of cultivation for these vines through biodynamics.
Aromas of red berries, rose petals and subtle spices introduce the 2021 Mercurey 1er Cru Les Crêts, a medium to full-bodied, lively and precise wine that's mineral and ethereal in profile. Bright and precise, it shows considerable promise. 89-91+ pts, William Kelley - Wine Advocate.
