ALBERT BICHOT DOM ADELIE MERCUREY PREMIER CRU CHAMPS MARTIN 2015

Mercurey was named after the Roman temple built here to honour the god Mercury. With 650 ha (1606 acres), 85 "village" vineyards and 32 Premier Crus, Mercurey is the largest of the Cote Chalonnaise's appellations. In 2005, Albert Bichot's estates spread to the Chalonnaise slopes, with the creation of "Domaine Adelie" with more than 4 ha (9.8 acres) in the Mercurey appellation. This vineyard faces south. The wine's finesse tempers all of the power this terroir could have.

2015 VINTAGE NOTES:
A great vintage, one the best in recent history for Burgundy. The months of June, July and August were marked by particularly dry, hot and even scorching weather conditions during several weeks. Thankfully, spells of rain which were eagerly awaited, fell in August and allowed to relaunch the maturation process which had slowed down and even stopped in certain vineyards.

TASTING
This Mercurey Premier Cru "Champs Martin" is fresh, fine and fragrant. Slightly oaked notes complement black fruit aromas on the nose, along with scents of violet, blueberry, blackberry and liquorice. Fleshy and velvety on the palate with flavours of strawberry and vanilla. Highly aromatic finish.

FOOD/WINE PAIRING
A fine accompaniment to red meats whether grilled, roasted or in red wine sauce, feathered game and mild cheeses.

SERVING AND KEEPING
Serve at 15C. (59F).

This wine may be enjoyed when young to fully benefit from its fruitiness or it may be laid down for between 5 and 7 years.
