Les Montots is situated on fairly steep slope with southern exposure, planted with a selection of Pinot Noir vines from Nuits-Saint-Georges chosen for their aromatic qualities and moderate yield.
The nose and palate correlate to the nature of the soil in Mercurey Les Montots: clay-limestone with iron presence. This lends the wine a racy, chiselled nose with chalky notes of cooked red fruits. On the palate, the wine is astonishingly supple and silky on first approach whilst the tannins are more present on the finish lengthening the tasting and leave a powerful impression. A great wine with ageing potential.
