Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity,
grapes are carefully harvested
and sorted out by hand,
Following the pneumatic press,
juices stay in a vat overnight for
a cool settling down and then are
directly filled in barrels by

Fermentations and aging are
taking place 100% in traditional
Burgundian 228 litres barrels
during 15 months with no new
barrels. We only use light
toasted French oak coming
mainly from Bourgogne, Allier
and Vosges forests.
The wine spends 2 months in
tanks and goes through a light
filtration before bottling

Tasting notes

Nice bright yellow color with golden reflects.

The first nose is progressively opening up on
white-flesh fruits (pear, peach), supported by
vanilla and heather notes.

On the palate, the wine shows a good and wellbalanced volume with a fresh menthol sensation
which is quite persistent and tangling with the
minerality of the terroir.

Food and wine pairings

The Mercurey Premier Cru 'La Mission' monopole
2021 will perfectly pair with a grilled bass along
with a vegetable julienne.

Service and cellaring
