Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, May 2018

    Vincent Charton is a talented young star making a mark in the appellation of Mercurey with his exciting brand of juicy Côte Chalonnaise Pinot Noir. His precocious talents are on full display in this ripe, fruity 2015. The scent of sweet crushed raspberries is followed by a delicious palate of supple hedgerow berry fruit with a little edge of spice. The tannins are ripe and creamy, and are married with the fresh lift of Pinot’s natural acidity. Already drinking superbly.

Producer

Domaine Vincent et Jean-Pierre Charton

We sought out a domaine in the Côte Chalonnaise for quite some time, so we were delighted to find Jean-Pierre Charton. Located in Mercurey, Jean-Pierre works his 21 hectares of vines with much care. His goal is to produce wonderfully friendly wines that offer all the appeal of juicy Pinot Noir without the rusticity that Mercurey was long famed for. Clive Coates has listed Jean-Pierre as one of the best domaines in the region. We have to concur.

Region

Mercurey

Located in the heart of the Cote Chalonnaise, Mercurey has the largest area under vine and produces the most structured wines in the district. A little white is produced, but it is robust earthy reds from Pinot Noir grown on limestone and marl soil that are most interesting. In the 16th Century Henri IV's lover Gabrielle d'Estrees was a fan, although the King himself preferred neighbouring Givry.
