In 2005, Alberic Bichot crated this estate (named after his young daughter) to symbolize the continued deep connection of the Bichot family with some of Burgundy's greatest vineyards. And in 2015, the 1er Cru parcel of Champs Martin delivered an exceptionaly great wine.  A good Mercurey has heft and depth; a great one adds finesse and purity. That's the lovely combination you'll find here in a wine you can enjoy tonight  or over the next 7+ years.

"This is at once riper but also more complex with good density to the red and dark currant, earth and violet aromas. The density continues on the delicious and caressing middle weight flavors that conclude in a lingering and balanced finish that is both youthfully austere and rustic."Allen Meadows 87-90 points

"The 2015 Mercurey 1Er Cru Champs-Martin, which as usual comes under the "Domaine Adélie" label, includes around 20% stem addition this year. It has an attractive bouquet with well-defined cranberry and raspberry preserve aromas, a hint of potpourri emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with sappy red and black fruit. There is a pleasant edginess here, sure a little rustic compared to others thanks to its broad-shouldered finish. However, there is charm and crispness, therefore I suspect it will drink well, especially with more hearty cuisine, over the next 4-7 years."Wine Advocate 87-89 points
