This wine balances power and mid‐palate tannin with a fresh, mineral finish. With a few years of bottle‐age it evolves to a smoother texture. In the first few years, decant it to open it up. Goes well with winter dishes that have some heft. Cellars nicely for 5‐10 years.

The 2016 Mercurey Les Veleys 1er Cru offers plump black cherry and raspberry notes on the nose, a hint of incense developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy opening, a fine bead of acidity and a grippy, slightly coarse finish that will need another 12 months to soften.
