Michel Juillot Mercurey 1er Cru Clos Tonnerre Rouge 2016
Real Burgundy at a great price. The domaine has existed for 4 generations, cultivates 30 hectares of vines producing a large selection of the best “climats” that Mercurey has to offer (South & South-East) as well as several Côte de Beaune Crus. Not exactly surprising given that Michel's grandfather (Laurent's great-grandfather) was responsible for determining some of the boundaries of Mercurey. As Michel and son, Laurent Juillot’s wines are referenced by a great number of Michelin-starred restaurants and guaranteed by the many prizes and medals they have been awarded, the Estate’s production singularly demonstrates a philosophy of quality upheld by a family of wine makers who not only admire, but also respect their terroir ('sense of place').
