This Cote Chalonnaise village gets its name from the God Mercury (God of Merchants). The story goes that a temple was erected here in honour of this deity. A Roman road called ‘la voie Agrippa’ (Agrippa’s Road) crosses through Mercurey, which in Roman times, linked Chalon-sur-Saone to Autun. Today, Mercurey numbers 1400 inhabitants and is known throughout the world for the reputation of its wines. It is the largest wine-growing community in Burgundy with over 600 hectares of vines.

Tasting notes
A beautiful dark ruby colour. The nose opens up with notes of fresh red fruits and spices. Pleasant to taste, this wine has a round and fruity attack before revealing its fine and silky tannins. This well-balanced wine with long-lasting aromas will be appreciated by knowledgeable winelovers and will seduce novices too

Food pairing
Grilled Meats, Cold Meats
