Olivier Merlin Bourgogne Rouge 2016

Recognized as one of the Maconnais’ greatest winemakers, Olivier Merlin and his wife Corinne began producing wines in 1987, purchasing and accumulating their own vines over the following decade. Known for his benchmark whites, this Bourgogne Rouge bottling is a unique shake-up to his usual cuvées; earthy and red-fruited, the wine is silky smooth, with notes of raspberries and strawberries. Aged 8 months in wood, lightly filtered, and unfined.


Wine Type






Pinot Noir

Eloquent dynamic charmer of wine drinkers. Thin-skinned early-ripening seducer of wine growers. Planted everywhere but great in only a few (cool-climate) spots including its homeland of Burgundy.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
