Don and I recently had tickets to a movie in North Dallas at the Village on the Parkway. Neither of us had had dinner and didn't have enough time to eat before the movie. We stopped in at Mercy to grab a cheese plate and a glass of wine. The weather was beautiful, so we sat outside on the patio and listened to the broken water fountain in the driveway while sipping our wine. (Please get that thing fixed-it doesn't belong to Mercy, so don't blame them!)
I'm not featuring his wine because I have already done so. Like I said, we were short on time, so we didn't have time to enjoy a bottle. So we bought two whites by the glass.
The wine I chose was a
2012 Jean-Marc Brocard Kimmeridgien Bourgogne Chardonnay ($18).
This entry level Bourgogne Blanc comes from a unique soil called Kimmeridgien. It is a grey colored limestone based soil originally identified in Kimmeridge, England and is found in Burgundy, Champagne, and the Loire Valley. This shows lively lime peel perfume. It is juicy, spicy, and floral. Very mineral driven.
If you'd like to experience the whole wine experience, then Mercy Wine Bar is one place to do that. They retail wine also, so you can take a little Mercy home with you. Check it out!
