2016 Chateau de Chamirey ‘Clos du Roi’ Premier Cru Mercurey Rouge Cote Chalonnaise
This wine will marvelously pair with peppered rib roast, beef filet mignon, lamb shoulder or rack of pork and cheeses as Tomme des Bauges.
Wine Enthusiast - "From a relatively large series of parcels covering 7.6 acres, this wine is well structured, with swathes of black fruits and firm tannins that will allow it to age. Soft, integrated tannins give the wine shape and aging potential. Drink from 2022."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2016 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roi is very promising, unfurling in the glass with notes of ripe cherries, plums, crushed cassis, licorice and candied citrus peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, with the mid-palate amplitude that one associates with this site, structured around fine-grained stony tannins and juicy acids."
Decanter - "This Clos du Roi is superb, with a pretty bouquet of red cherry, summer fruits and some meaty, earthy bass notes. On the palate the wine is supple, full-bodied and layered, with a fine but firm chassis of tannins, good concentration, and a succulent core of fruit."
