Meix Foulot

IMG00083-20110926-1644Tasted through 3 vintages of Mercurey today with Agnes de Launay: ’10, ’09, 08 … all four cuvees: 1er Cru (Les Montaigus, Les Byots), Les Saumonts, Les Veleys, Clos du Chateau de Montaigu.

Agnes is finding her form. There is a beautiful purity to her wines now and they are less “timid”. Of course, the ’09 is the most structured and dense but the two other vintages show scintillating freshness and classic terroir of Mercurey with a mix of “sauvage” red and black berries and a hint of soil that makes these wines compellingly rustic.
