2017 Domaine Bruno Lorenzon Mercurey Rouge "Le Chapitre"

SKU #1467396 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A wine that would embarrass most of the appellation's premiers crus, the 2016 Mercurey Le Châpitre offers up a generous bouquet of crushed red cherries, cassis and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and succulent, with fine-grained tannins, a lovely core of fruit and a pure, transparent profile, concluding with light grip. (WK) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

K&L Notes

William Kelley writes: "Bruno Lorenzon's exceptional wines continue to expand the parameters of the possible in the Côte Chalonnaise, shattering the glass ceiling that's typically imposed upon the wines of Mercurey. His 2017 portfolio is a worthy successor to his 2016 collection, delivering whites of breathtaking purity that stand out for their weightless concentration and reds that display the effortlessness that only comes with a top winemaker at the peak of his powers. As I wrote last year, Lorenzon's vines are trained higher than his neighbors' and farmed organically—something that's still very rare in this appellation. Yields are routinely a mere fraction of his neighbors'. And in the cellar, attention is paid to every detail to safeguard the wines' finesse and precision. All that's the fruit of continuous hard work since he took the reins at this family estate in 1997. Today—along with Rully's Vincent Dureuil-Janthial—Bruno Lorenzon gets my nod as the finest winemaker in the Côte Chalonnaise, and I warmly recommend all his wines to our readers."
