Roux Pere & Fils, Mercurey rouge, Champs-Pillot
Handpicked harvest and first fermentation in stainless steel tank for 15 days. Second fermentation in oak barrels (20% new casks). Maturation during 9-10 months in the cellar for aging, stored in barrels.
Color: Deep, profound ruby in color.
Nose: Crisp-fruited, and it evokes strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. Age brings in notes of underbrush, spicy tobacco notes, and cocoa beans.
Palate: Rich, full-bodied, and chewy. In its youth, the tannins of this wine lend it a mineral firmness. When aged, it is attractively rounded and meaty.
Food Pairing: Beef rib steaks, or joints of beef or lamb, braised or in the sauce. Roast pork is well suited to its rich aromas, as are poultry-based stews. As for the cheeseboard, this wine harmonizes equally well with either mild, soft cheeses or aged versions.
