Charmeur dans sa jeunesse, ce mercurey gourmand et fruité promet de beaux accords avec un plateau de charcuterie. Voilà ce que nous a confié Marie Jacqueson ! More info

Rioja Alta is the coolest region in Rioja thanks to the influence of the Atlantic and is therefore spared from the stifling heat elsewhere in the region. Maturana Tinta is an indigenous grape variety that had almost disappeared and was brought back from near extinction by Juan Carlos Sancha. The grapes are harvested by hand before being destemmed and fermenting in 500-litre barrels. The wine is raised for just under a year in these same casks. It is spicy, with lots of texture.

Mercurey Les Vaux Paul & Marie Jacqueson serve at a temperature of 15°C.

Information about domainPaul & Marie Jacqueson

Henri Jacqueson (Paul’s father) took over the family land and planted it with vines. Gradually, he expanded the domaine by buying well placed parcels in Mercurey and especially in Rully. Currently, Paul (who joined his father in 1972), his wife Pierrette and their daughter Marie (who took over in 2007) own 12 hectares of well-distributed vines, mainly in Rully, but also in Mercurey (1. 3ha) and Bouzeron (0.8ha). Their soils are mechanically worked (no weed killers) because according to Paul Jacqueson, only slow and repeated ploughing properly maintains the soil. The harvest is entirely manual and the grapes are sorted and destemmed as soon as they arrive at the winery. The red wines, like the whites, are laid for 12 months in oak barrels made by several Burgundy coopers with staves from the Troncay forest and dried for at least two years. The proportion of new barrels is generally 20% for whites and 25% for reds.
