Clos Marcilly 2017 | Mercurey | Les Heritiers Saint Genys
Emblematic vine of the Domaine, in monopoly since 2016, it comes from an exceptional plot of Mercurey, among the most prestigious of the appellation, in the Hameau d'Etroyes. Entirely enclosed by walls, this plot of 7.5 ha in total is thus sheltered from the greatest frost. And the presence of a spring allows it not to suffer too much from drought. 4.21 hectares from 228 to 240 meters above sea level, with deep and sandy clay-limestone soil.
Manual harvest in small boxes. Total destemming, fermentation in stainless steel tanks, malolactic fermentation, classic vinification, cold pre-fermentation maceration. Aged in oak barrels, light filtration, technical cork stopper.
