Maison Chanzy Les Caraby Mercurey 2018
- Textured, savoury
Located in an old house that belonged to Vincent Leflaive, the Maison Chanzy in Puligny-Montrachet is a modern producer, crafting pristine wines across some of the best plots in Burgundy. Their Mercurey vineyard in the Côte Chalonnaise is located on marl limestone soils, perfect for growing pinot noir. It’s the most famous of the Chalonnaise villages and you can see why in this wine. Cherries and red currants abound, with earthy notes and a nervy acid that is common from these soil types. Light-to-medium bodies with the finest of tannin - this is one to drink now and for the next 5-10 years.
“A suggestion of reduction with this dark fruit – almost suggesting some chocolate too. Wide, super shape/structure, the tannin is hyper-fine here – no grain – open with clarity of flavour, width of flavour too. A very subtle oak complexity – this is a classy, great, villages – bravo!”
Full price $80.00 from the producer.
