The vines are worked in a rational way in order to preserve the natural environment as much as possible. Harvesting is done by hand and vinification is carried out raw by vintage.The Mercurey appellation is the most renowned of the Cote Chalonnaise, and one of the most important appellations of Burgundy.

This red is plump and packed with black cherry, blackberry, floral and earth notes. A firm backbone of tannins is nicely integrated and lingers with a chalky feel on the finish.
