Description

François Raquillet is recognised as, possibly, the best producer in the village of Mercurey. François, the 11th generation of grape growers, has 10 hectares of superbly sited, mostly old, vines. He believes in low yields, mature (rather than super-ripe) fruit and a severe selection at the table de tri. The depth, richness and concentration which characterise his wines are a result of this, rather than any over extraction.

The Mercurey Vieilles Vignes, from 3 parcels of 60 year old vines (1-3 year old barrels) is delicious, juicy and seductive and offers exceptional value for money.
