BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR
2017 BOURGOGNE Pinot Noir Domaine François Raquillet
Always well priced, the Raquillet Bourgogne has an attractive red cranberry nose. Sappy dark fruit joins on the palate. Quite simple in its approach but with balanced acidity and tannin, this an attractive and easy wine. One to buy in bulk and enjoy guilt-free over the next two to four years. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 L&S (Oct 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Very pale crimson. Lots of grip and purity. Very refreshing and not too skinny. GV Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2019)
Look no further than 2017 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Domaine François Raquillet for perfectly-dimensioned Pinot pleasure. I am drinking the 2016 right now and it is a joy. The 2017 is every bit as delicious. Rating: 16.5 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com(Jan 2019)
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.
