Mercurey 1er Cru Clos l'Eveque 2019, Domaine Marechal
A very elegant Burgundy with the full and rounded structure we expect from these wines. Ripe and luscious, drinking beautifully but will last longer. Drink 2020-2026
Jean Marechal and Marc Bonvigne (Jean's son-in-law) have continued the successes that this 10 hectare estate enjoyed in the early 1990's. Both are totally dedicated and passionate about what they produce and are making some profound, brilliantly coloured and complex Pinot Noir which always have overtones of cherries and raspberries.
The Maurice Chevalier look-a-like, Jean, maintains one of the most immaculate wineries and barrel-cellars in Burgundy and this attention to detail is clearly reflected in the quality of the wines.
