- Terroir : "The Côte Chalonnaise, in Saône et Loire, continues the Côte d'Or southward from the Côte de Beaune to the north of the Mâconnais hills. Mercurey is one of Burgundy's largest wine appellations by size of wine-growing area. Its Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) was created in 1923. The vines are at an altitude of 230-320 metres. They extend over the marls and marly-limestone soils of the Oxfordian. Few white wines are produced here."
- Vinification & Elevage : "These grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes arrive whole at our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (15% of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation where they will develop silky aromas over 10-12 months."
- Commentaries by our oenologist : A clear colour, presenting a powerful body in the mouth balanced by the freshness of white fruits. A perfect balance between liveliness and elegance.
- Food pairing : This white Mercurey is perfect with an extensive cheese platter: Abondance, Tome de chèvre, Comté, Swiss Gruyère, Beaufort.
