CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Mercurey 1er Cru "Les Puillets"

CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Mercurey Premier Cru "Les Puillets" - Pinot Noir - Burgundy, FRANCE

An amazing and deep garnet-colored robe. The nose is really intense with an aromatic range composed of blackberry and spicy wooden touches. The mouth is powerful. Tannins are present, elegant, which gives a remarkable sweep. The aromatic range is complex. Black fruits, discreet wood, soft species are going together very well. The wine is homogeneous, well balanced, powerful and refined as well. The finale is long and captivating. A wonderful product which will express in the new years all its beautiful potential. A wine of character..
