Domaine Michel Juillot Mercurey Clos des Barraults 2012
Deep, brillant, ruby red in color with violet-blue highlights. Although the nose remains a bit shy in its youth, the extent of its mineral content, fruit scents (cherry, red currant) and woody aromas beg to be revealed. On the palate its richness bursts forth ; it is square, "masculine" and concentrated, overflowing with extracts. It infuses the palate with its lingering jammy finish.
