Domaine Maurice Protheau & Fils Chateau d'Etroyes Mercurey Blanc Les Ormeaux 2018

Domaine Maurice Protheau & Fils Chateau d'Etroyes Mercurey Blanc Les Ormeaux is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

Graceful light yellow color fringed with a bright green disk. Nose with white flowers aromas and a predominance of hawthorn. Round and toasted mouth with a melted woody note. Full, fresh and mineral on the middle palate. It develops roundness and an impressive richness that envelops aromas of pineapple, lychee, and grapefruit notes.

After a rigorous control of maturity during the summer, harvesting is carried out as soon as the sugar content of the grapes is optimal to allow the most natural winemaking. The harvested grapes are then transported to the winery Le Clos l'Evêque, where they are pressed out immediately on the pneumatic press. After a low temperature static settling for a day, the must is intoned in 500 liter oak barrels in the cellar where they will ferment slowly at low temperatures. Then patiently during the winter the wines will evolve: malolactic fermentation and stirring of the lees will follow one another to give at the end of spring, wines of great finesse.


Review:

"Floral aromas are wrapped in tropical fruit. The mouthfeel is steely; on the edge of lemon, lychee and ground up stone. Plucky acidity: a fine line of a high-wire act, balanced by a clean, pure sense of its terroir."

- The Somm Journal (December 2021), 94 pts


"A touch of chalk surrounds the lemony notes of wheat bran on the nose of this wine. Chalkiness continues on the smooth, textured and slightly creamy palate, which has lemony overtones. Freshness makes for a bright yet smooth finish. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"
