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.

2 plots ‘En Pierrelet’, planted in 1990, located right behind Château de Chamirey. Surface : 2,9670 hectares (7,32 acres). Climat & Soil : smooth terrasse offering a mix of clay and limestone with a limestone predominance. Huge concentration of small white stones on the surface. South-East facing.

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Full clusters. Following the pneumatic press, juices stay in a vat overnight for a cool settling down and then are directly filled in barrels by gravity. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in barrels.

Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 litres barrels as well as 400 litres barrels during 11 months with around 20% of new barrels. We only use light toasted French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.

Food pairing
