Domaine de Suremain Mercurey 2010


A great value and reasonably priced burgundy – this wine was made by Domaine de Suremain. Its origin is Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France and comes from 7ha of vineyards classified as Village appellation. It is produced from the 2010 harvest – a classic vintage which resulted in small berries and good ripeness: all showing in this wine with good colour, depth of flavour and balance. This wine has a nice line and length which belies its reasonable price tag.

Deep ruby red with abundant berry aromas. The palate is equally complete with mixed dark berries and a touch of oak. Slight bitterness on the finish doesn’t really detract from the overall positive experience this wine provides. The texture is faultless and the length very good. The quality of this wine is well above normal Village levels.

Highly recommended as a value for money bargain burgundy. Yes, you can find burgundies which are relatively inexpensive and represent great value!
