An intense and fruity Mercurey Village red

This 100% Pinot Noir of Mâconnais is produced by Château de Chamirey of Domaines Devillard on a vineyard of 1.36 hectares. Clos de la Maladière consists of 3 plots planted between 1959 and 1979. Exposed from the South toward the North on a slightly sloping ground with small pebbles, the Pinot Noir vines grow on clay-limestone soils, predominantly clayey.

The Château de Chamirey Clos de la Maladière 2016 is a Mercurey Village of dark ruby colour, denoting a certain density and concentration in the wine. The nose is delicate, not exuberant but on the contrary, merely suggesting aromas. Upon notes of red fruit, more precisely cherry, this Mercurey Red Village is more notable for its subtlety than for a demonstrative nature. The palate is intense with a fine tannic structure, but which one can observe as having a tactile grain, in itself very fine. A juicy sensation persists, which participates in the freshness, even a certain gustative tension of the wine. This is a wine full of promises.

Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Mercurey Clos de la Maladiÿre is a real successâÇöand notably superior to its somewhat rustic 2015 sibling that I tasted earlier this year. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of rich cassis, red cherries, forest floor and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety palate, with a deep core of fruit and sappy balancing acids. This is a very impressive example of a Mercurey Village that comes warmly recommended.
