Rougeot-Dupin - Mercurey 2019
Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. The Rougeot-Dupin label is a venture that started in 1990 in order to diversify the family range. Mercurey is named after the roman temple built here to honour the god Mercury. With 1,600 acres, 85 vineyard parcels and 32 premier crus, the Mercurey appellation is the largest of the Côte Chalonnaise appellations. Our vineyard has a south-eastern exposure and is located on top of the hillside near the village of Etroyes.
Very fresh, it has quite delicate fruit : limestone minerality and blossom including rose, lilac and narcissus. It has good liveliness while being full-fleshed with good, balanced body. This wine is ready to drink or may be cellared for 3 to 5 years or more. 100% Chardonnay.
