The opinion of the sommelier

Mercurey is not any appellation in Burgundy. Indeed, it is the biggest appellation in the Côte Chalonnaise sub-region and it is known for the intensity of red berries aromas the terroir gives to pinot noir there. This batch is particularly remarkable as it blends the aromas typical of Mercurey with refined woody notes that bring more complexity and smoky aromas. A great wine ! 

 

Terroir

The vineyards in Mercurey benefit from a special terroir as it lies on a hilly relief that alternates gentle and steep slopes. This kind of relief has a huge advantage: it allows winemakers to harvest grapes that were grown under different exposures to the sun and with different levels of water stress so as to elaborate wine with a lot of complexity.

lecepageGrape variety

Wines made from pinot noir have the specificity of displaying a light colour. Tasted during their youth, the wines have fresh aromas of cherry, raspberry and blackberry. As the wine ages, these aromas evolve into more ripened fruits and leather. The good news is that only the pinot noirs elaborated on the best terroirs can age, which is absolutely the case with this wonderful Mercurey that can age up to 6 years.

lemillesimeVintage

In 2010, the winemakers in Burgundy only harvested 60% of the grapes they usually pick up. Indeed, this dry vintage only gave small grape berries. Thus, the wine was produced in low quantity but was very concentrated and will remain in the memories as an amazing vintage in Burgundy, characterized by an unusually silky texture as you’ll feel while tasting the wine. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In 1875, Antoine Rodet, son of a grocer, inherited a few hectares of land after he married the daughter of a farmer. At that time, the area of Chalon-sur-Saône was going through an economic boom and the young Antoine took the opportunity to invest in agricultural equipment to turn his farm into a vineyard. A few years later, his ambitious son Antonin took over, gave the vineyard his name, and developed it, building the basis of the large and famous winery that Rodet is nowadays.
