2009 Domaine de la Monette Mercurey Villages (rouge) - $19.83 (12.6% alc, alluvial soil)
More luminescent red fruit than the En Cortechat. Spice, lilting red berry fruits. Lovely sap, tart berry, black fruit. Good structure, lovely silky fruit that expands but retains a feather quality. With air an enticing smoky nuance develops. Very strong wine of varietal and vineyard expression. Not as “on the vintage” as the En Cortechat, more on the terroir. Exciting for its level and a worthy juxtaposition.
