Theulot Mercurey Rouge 2006
The younger generation are firmly in control at this 12 hectare domaine. Whilst carefully respecting the different terroirs and their parents well proved traditions, they are not afraid to experiment. Half the estate is in premier crus and their house style is for supple wines with crisp red and black fruit flavours backed by 25% new oak. Blended from three separate vineyards with an average age of thirty-five years. Plenty of fruit flavours with some oak presence beneath. Slightly earthy undertones. Fresh with good length.
