Description

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.

Vinification

Fermentation

The grapes are sorted and then de-stemmed, and transported to the vat with the help of belts, always with the aim of having a whole grape, not crushed. We proceed to a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. During this phase, the aromas of the grapes and components such as anthocyanins are released. Then comes the fermentation during which we proceed to daily pigeage to extract the matter, the tannins. Vatting lasts between 18 and 20 days.
