Blueish light crimson. Quite high in volatile acidity! But pretty juicy fruit underneath. Just a tad mean. A bit tart. Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2016)

François Raquillet makes a white as well as a red from this impressive Premier Cru. This comes from the redder soils and is a very refined Pinot that outperforms its appellation. Stylish oak, fine-boned tannins, lovely redcurrant and raspberry sweetness and refreshing acidity. 2017-22 Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Jan 2016)

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.
