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