The earthy red berry fruit aromas display a hint of the sauvage that continues onto the rich, lush and very round middle weight flavors that are utterly delicious if perhaps not as complex as they usually are. This should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age. 2018+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, 2016)

Beautiful and delicate red fruit aromas with earthy notes. The palate has pure, elegant raspberry fruit, herbal tones and fine tannins. A real find for Burgundy fans. Rating: 90 Decanter Magazine(Dec 2016)

Succulent, sweet and juicy. Lots of fun even if for the medium term. Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2016)

Domaine François Raquillet

François took over the running of this estate from his father, Jean, in 1990, with his wife Emmanuelle. Records show that the same family have made wine in Mercurey since the 1600s, and Francois is the eleventh generation.

With eleven hectares under vine, François has substantially reduced yields, introduced higher quality oak barrels (up to 50% new wood for the Premiers Crus) and significantly increased the quality of wines made at this domaine. François 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.
