Reviews of purchase Chateau de Chamirey, Mercurey Rouge, 2016
Wine of intense ruby color with a slight purple sheen.
Flexible, fresh, perfectly balanced taste reveals bright tones of ripe dark fruit in combination with velvety tannins.
Among the tantalizing aromas of black berries is dominated by shades of blueberries and blackberries, which gradually join vanilla and woody notes.
This wine is best enjoyed in conjunction with braised beef, mutton baked ham, poultry or duck in berry sauce. A good pair can also make cream cheese.
