We have represented François Raquillet since the 1993 vintage, when he was a talented, up-and-coming vigneron. Today, he is recognised as, possibly, the best producer in the village. François, the 11th generation of grape growers in Mercurey, has 10 hectares of superbly sited, mostly old, vines. He believes in low yields, mature (rather than super-ripe) fruit and a severe selection at the table de tri. The depth, richness and concentration which characterise his wines are a result of this, rather than any over extraction.

The Bourgogne Rouge and Mercurey Vieilles Vignes, from 3 parcels of 60 year old vines (1-3 year old barrels) are delicious, juicy and seductive, whilst the 1er Crus have even more depth, richness and potential longevity. Les Vasées is a 1.2 hectare plot of 55 year old vines on marne and limestone soils (25% new oak). Les Veleys is a 0.8 hectare plot of 60 year old vines in the sector of Chamirey, on heavier marne soils (30% new oak). Les Naugues is from perfectly sited 40 year old vines on marne and limestone soils. The Mercurey Blanc “La Brigadière” is a delicious revelation, from 25 year old vines and vinified in 400ltr. demi-muids (20% new).
