Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

The south of Burgundy has long been underestimated because no Grands Crus were located there. The truth is that some amazing terroirs lie there and the little bonus of sun they get around Chalon gives a quite persistent version of pinot noir. Mercurey is doubtlessly one of the best appellation in this area ! 

 

Terroir

The vineyard of Mercurey enjoys a very special terroir because it lays on a rugged relief punctuated by small hills alternating gentle and severe slopes. This type of relief gives grapes that have benefited from various sun exposures. Therefore, the final blend will display a larger spectrum of aromas, hence a higher level of complexity.

lecepage Grape variety

Pinot Noir is an old-timer. Experts agree that it was already present in the first century of our era. Indeed, this grape variety would have seen the Gallics fighting against the Romans and would have even witnessed the birth of the Burgundy vineyard. That’s how it became throughout the centuries the main and then the only black variety in Burgundy.

lemillesime Vintage

In the vineyards as in the cellars, 2015 was a very "speed" vintage in Burgundy. Flowering started prematurely and harvesting took place at the end of August. The weather gave the tempo and the winemakers could adapt to this sustained rhythm and to these unusual conditions, harvesting superb grapes, the key condition of a great vintage ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The story of Primavinae began in 1951 here in Burgundy and quickly grew : now the respected winemaking company own vineyards in almost all the villages of the region, which is quite uncommon. Moreover, their vines are usually located on the best terroirs, as it is the case for Louis Soufflot’s vines throughout the villages of southern Burgundy.
