Les Cinq 2016 of Château de Chamirey: a Mercurey 1st Growth with beautiful tannic structure

A 100% Pinot Noir red wine, Les Cinq of Château de Chamirey comes from a selection of the best parts of the estate’s five Mercurey 1st Growth, planted with red grapes. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soils predominantly made of clay. The wine is aged for about 15 months in oak barrels.

With its dark ruby colour, the Mercurey 1er Cru Les Cinq 2016 of Château de Chamirey develops a concentrated nose that reveals notes of black fruits, Morello cherries and pepper. Structured on the palate, the Les Cinq 2016 of Château de Chamirey reveals a beautiful tannic structure before displaying a finish of great elegance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A special cuvée from the Château de Chamirey, the 2016 Mercurey 1er Cru Les Cinq is matured in 100% new oak, but it has already integrated it to a surprising degree, wafting from the glass with notes of red and black cherries, rich soil, espresso roast and game bird. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with juicy acids and a fine-grained but firm chassis of tannin that will demand some time in the cellar. I suspect it would be somewhat more graceful and transparent if it were matured in less new wood, but it's a serious Mercurey.
