When aged, it is attractively rounded and meaty.
White: a typical Chardonnay gold, it varies in its degree of paleness and is flecked with green. It boasts aromas of white flowers (mayflower, acacia), hazelnut, almond, and spices (cinnamon, pepper). A touch of flint is a trademark of this wine. Full of flavour, it is an eminently drinkable wine.

Mercurey, situated in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise (12 kilometres from Chalon-sur-Saône) is one the foremost appellations of Bourgogne. Protected from moisture-bearing winds, tucked away in its hillsides or stretched along the aptly-named “Golden Valley” the vineyards stretch as far as the neighbouring village of Saint-Martin-sous-Montaigu. The AOC status was instituted in 1923.
Reunited by means of the Brotherhood of the Chanteflûte, created in 1971, the local winemakers are dedicated to enjoying the wines of Mercurey and promoting them to the world.


The vines grow at heights of 230 to 320 metres. They spread over marls and marly calcic soils of Oxfordian limestone. On the eastern side, they grow in calcic and marly soils. In the west crystalline Jurassic rocks are overlain by gravels. Part of the vineyards belong to the Bathonien. On these white limey soils and red clays, the vines are truly at home.
