Highly rated Premier Crus for under $50 a bottle! Remember the good old days!
More new and super reviews from the Wine Enthusiast magazine
Container arrives this week. Last chance at Pre Arrival Prices

Late last year I had the pleasure of visiting Domaine Suremain for the first time. We tasted the full range of 2015's and 2016's as well as numerous older vintages over dinner. The tasting reinforced the critics views - these wines drink exceptionally well and are outstanding value for money.

Our first order arrives this week and quantities available are now very limited. If you are looking for Premier Crus to drink on a regular basis you simply can't go past these.

The Domaine de Suremain comprises 18 hectares of vines spread across some of Mercurey's finest appellations. The property has been in the same family for seven generations and is currently run by Yves and Loic Suremain.

A chance contact with an old acquaintance brought this lovely little domaine to my attention. These days is not often that highly rated Premier Crus can be found for under $50 so my interest was certainly piqued. 

Domaine de Suremain have 6 different red Mercurey including 5 Premier Crus. They also have a white from the 1er Cru En Sazenay. And the prices are just tremendous, especially considering the consistently great reviews.

To tempt you even further we offer all wines at an introductory Pre Arrival Discount of 25%. That makes some of the red 1er Crus less than $50.00! Ah, remember the good old days!

Below are the six wines still available. As you can see quantities remaining are small. Mix and match a case before they all go. Make sure you take a look at the full range here.

Suremain Eveque Label
Tim Atkin MW: 
The 2015s are the best ever releases from this historic Mercurey domaine. Situated on a stony, east-facing terroir, this is a serious, compact Pinot that's made to age, showing tobacco leaf, succulent red and black fruits and skilfully integrated oak. 2020-28. 94 Points
Wine Spectator: Rich and packed with ripe cherry, currant and floral flavors. Firms up, with a stony, minerally essence on the finish. Feels balanced overall. Best from 2019 through 2028. 92 Points

Wine Enthusiast: 
From perhaps the best known of Mercurey's premier crus, this is a firm solid wine, dense with tannins and concentrated berry fruits. It has a ripe character that is still embedded in the tannins. That means aging and this wine should not be drunk before 2023.

Pre Arrival Price $55.95

Suremain Bondeau Label Tim Atkin MW: 93 Points

Wine Spectator:  
Firm and chalky, with underlying cherry, black currant and light tar flavors. Pure and mouthwatering, the tannins are bound to the effusive fruit. Shows excellent balance and length. Best from 2020 through 2033
93 Points
Wine Enthusiast: A seven-acre vineyard on the eastern side of Mercurey gives a wine that is broad and ripe. Both its structure and its juicy red fruits are generous and with a firm core of tannins. The wine is likely to age well. Drink from 2022. 93 Points
Mercurey 1er Cru Les Crets 2015 
Landed Price $66.95
Pre Arrival Price $49.95

Tim Atkin MW: 93 Points
Wine Spectator:  
Bright, with cherry and black currant fruit, this rich, round red picks up flourishes of earth and spice. Supple overall, finishing long and satisfying. Best from 2019 through 2030. 
92 Points
Wine Enthusiast: 
The Suremain family winery in the main street of Mercurey has cellars going back to the 17th century. This wood-aged wine will have been kept here, where it has developed into a structured and firm wine, full of dry tannins as well as ripe red-berry fruits. Drink from 2023. 92 Points

Suremain Mercurey Label Wine Spectator:
A pretty red, boasting rose, strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors, with touches of earth and mineral adding interest as this winds down on the finish. Elegant and fresh. Drink now through 2025. 91 Points
Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss:  
This family vineyard, based in the village of Mercurey has produced a richly fruity wine, generous with its red-plum and spice flavors. Tannins do go through the wine, giving it the possibility of further aging. Ripe and with attractive acidity, the wine will be ready from 2018. 90 Points
