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.
