Darker fruit - a real dark depth. Still much the same gourmandise as the Vieilles Vignes, just a touch more serious, slightly peppery spicy fruit. L&S (Jan 2013)

A fresh, ripe and overtly spicy nose also offers up notes of dark berry fruit liqueur along with hints of earth, underbrush and pepper. Here too there is excellent volume to the round, delicious and lightly mineral-infused flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract before delivering fine length on the velvety finish. 2017+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2013)
Oak again a little dominant but there is more fruit to counterbalance it. Quite sharp cornered at the moment but fresh and verdant. Hint of bitterness on the finish. 2015-2019 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
Domaine François Raquillet
François took over the running of this estate from his father, Jean, in 1984, and records show that the same family have made wine in Mercurey since the 1600s. With eleven hectares under vine, François has substantially reduced yields, introduced higher quality oak barrels and significantly increased the quality of wines made at this domaine. Francois explains he tries to avoid over-extraction at all costs - his one aim is to deliver the beautifully pure fruit profile he gets out of the old vines - this he does with great success. It is a wonderfully transparent style- combined with good mid-palate weight.
