Once again there is enough wood to notice but not to really diminish the appeal of the black pinot fruit, earth and softly spicy aromas. There is a restrained, even cool mouth feel to the delicious middle weight flavors thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins that shape the delicious and vibrant finish. This doesn’t quite have the overall depth of the Veleys or the Naugues but on the plus side it should be accessible earlier. 2019+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2015)

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.
