Champs de Themis 2019 Mercurey Les Bosebuts, Burgundy
Mercurey is located in Burgundy’s Cote Chalonnaise, a place where smart importers have been traveling to score some Burgundy flavor for a little less money than the more well-known regions. 100% organic Pinot Noir grown in mineral-rich soils. Dark red fruit is dominate here but there is some spice and dried/cured meat and mushroom flavors too. Medium weight in the mouth with a wonderfully focused finish. Braised meats or fowl would be lovely here, but so would a hunk of stinky cheese and sweet cured meat.
