This is another incredible value in a very rare Burgundy. The tiny 1er cru vineyard of Les Levriere is solely owned by Domain Brintet and produces only around 250 cases of wine per year. This is a beautifully complex and refined wine.
The domain is one of the oldest estates in all of Burgundy. The Brintet history in Mercurey begins with the arrival of Jehan Brietat from Italy in 1340 ! In the late 1500s the family became owners of some vines in Mercurey. Flash forward several centuries and we find Luc Brintet and his wife Veronique heading the 11.5-hectare domaine since 1984. It is they who have ushered the domaine into the upper echelon of Mercurey producers—they have gradually expanded holdings while at the same time increasing quality in an effort to showcase the incredible values this appellation can provide.
