*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Not for the first time we've been hugely impressed by Mercurey grower François Raquillet's basic Bourgogne. Far from being basic, it's a Pinot Noir of vibrancy, purity and finesse, with a floral, spicy Pinot nose, flowing sweet raspberry fruit and delicate nuttiness.

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.
A fine selection from the majestic slopes of the Côte de Beaune.
