Domaine Roux Père & Fils Mercurey La Perriere AOC

Rich and full-bodied, La Perrière offers cherry, raspberry, and strawberry notes with hints of tobacco and cocoa. This single vineyard is composed of a wide range of soils from limestone to marl to red clay soil, rendering a complex wine. Estate-grown fruit undergoes fermentation on the lees in French oak barrels, followed by an aging period of about 10 months in 50% stainless steel and 50% in French oak.

A wine relatively high in red-currant-like acidity. It has a rustic side to it; the fruit has potential richness and should come through in 2-3 years.
