The Mercurey 1er Cru "Clos des Montaigus" is a wine that belongs to the absolute top. This 1er Cru is complex. Its colour is deep ruby - pomegranate red. The nose is strawberry, raspberry, cherry, undergrowth and cocoa beans. On the palette we discover a full-bodied wine, powerful and fat with a good dose of tannins in his early years. Because he can seem rather nervous to young people, this is a wine that should rest or breathe for a while before you pour it over him (decantation or opening an hour in advance). He is fully entitled to 4 to 12 years of age. This 1er Cru with its sturdy structure is combined with dishes with distinct flavors. It is the ideal wine for grilled red meat, roast beef, all game, leg of lamb in red wine, roast pork and firm sauces. Cheeses are an ideal combination with this wine; both young and old sturdy cheeses. A hidden gem for connoisseurs.
Serve at 14-15° for young wines and 15-16° for older wines.
