Well known also for its dense, deep reds, Mercurey is the flagship appellation for the Côte Chalonnaise. The vineyards, extending over almost 650 hectares of land, are geographically aligned with the Côte de Beaune. The area has a clay/chalk soil, which is similar to many of the most prestigious appellations of the Côte d'Or. This important area of Burgundy displays a large array of soil types. This diversity promotes the cultivation of excellent Chardonnay wines. This success explains why today almost 115 hectares are devoted to its production.
These wines, which are very similar to Côte de Beaune wines, combine good maturity, freshness and often minerality.
