Dom. Theulot-Juillot 2021 Mercurey 1er Cru "Les Combins"
Les Combins is perhaps not intrinsically superior in quality to, for instance, La Cailloute. But it always has a degree of velour and depth that are hard to resist. Simultaneously weighty and buoyant, with a ravishing scent of cedar and cocoa. Pure class. Jean-Claude achieved wonders of cleanness and ripeness in the historically challenging vintage of 2021, such that one needs to make absolutely no allowances for the difficulties. What was lacking was quantity! Our allocation was a scant 25 cases.
