Tucked away in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey boasts some of the finest quality-value ratio of all Burgundy. From an old family estate, this top vintage wine, a third from Premier Cru sites, is silky with red fruit freshness and spice.
Beyond the Label
Polished, silky red fruit – berries, cherries - spice length
Named after the village it looks out over, the beautiful Château de Chamirey is a flagship of Mercurey. The turreted building was built in the early 18th century and the estate has been handed down the generations until, today, its run by Amaury Devillard, a true champion of the region. He explains how once Mercurey was regarded as rather a rustic wine. Today, however, with its 32 Premiers Crus, it is far from that – flinty, crisp whites and silky, polished Pinot Noirs. And with such a range of soils and aspect, the breadth of styles is fascinating. The fruit for this exceptional 2018 come from 13 different vineyards, a third from Premiers Crus. Ageing for a year in cask has lent layers of complex flavour to the lush, bright fruit.
"Fine, silky, polished – red Burgundy from a superb vintage. Delicious now or cellar"
