The Côte Chalonnaise is a continuation of the Côte de Beaune, to the south of Santenay. Of the five appellations in the Côte Chalonnaise, Mercurey is the best known.
The vineyards surround the village and face either south or east/ north east. Composition soil makes Mercurey quite similar to wines from the Côte de Beaune. There are several highly regarded « Premiers Crus ».
Our white Mercurey is vinified and then aged about 12 months in oak barrels before bottling.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
Louis Jadot Mercurey has a beautiful yellow gold colour, limpid and brilliant. It develops powerful and harmonious aromas of white flowers and toasted notes. Nice attack in the mouth, roundness and fresh citrus aromas. Nice aromatic reminder.
It will be an excellent partner especially for Noix de Saint Jacques with wild mushrooms.
It will be at its best between 5 to 8 years and must be kept in very good conditions of temperature and humidity.
