Situation géographique et terroir
The Mercurey appellation is part of the Côte Chalonnaise vineyards and is one of the most important wine appellations in Burgundy. Indeed, it covers more than 400 hectares and was appreciated by Gabrielle d’Estrée, mistress of Henri IV. The appellation owes its name to the god of commerce and messenger of the gods in Roman mythology, Mercury.
The grapes are sorted, de-stemmed and then gently conveyed to the vat on a conveyor belt, without pumping. Before fermentation, we proceed to a cold maceration at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. Vatting lasts between 18 and 20 days, during which we punch down the cap daily. The wine is then put into barrels and the malolactic fermentation is carried out in full.
Lightly toasted so-called blonde, 20 to 25% new barrels
