The Domaine of Château de Chamirey, planted in the best terroirs of Mercurey, covers 95 acres of which 38 are located amongst the most renowned Premiers Crus of the appellation. Domain consists in 37 hectares (27 reds, 10 whites, 15 of which are Premier Cru) reflecting the diverse soils and micro climates found within the Mercury appellation. The whites, fresh and lively and well balanced. This reaches its finest expression in the powerful Premier Cru "La Mission". Château de Chamirey red is true indulgence. It has a silky texture, and is very fruity typically showing the flavour of cherries.

10 small plots are making this red Mercurey rouge + 3 plots of Premier Cru (En Sazenay; Champs-Martin; Clos L’Évêque). Climat & Soil : dominated by clay and limestone with a clay predominance. Various exposures.

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold pre-fermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component’s exctraction. Grapes are previously partially destemmed. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.

Aging process is taking place 80% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels and 20% in stainless steel vats during 12 months. We use around 10% of new barrels. We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.
