From a six-hectare parcel, the 2017 Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands is quite reminiscent of the 2009 rendition, opening in the glass with notes of cherries, black raspberries, dark chocolate and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and velvety, with a layered and nicely concentrated core, ripe acids and an expansive finish.
