WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING 

“The 2017 Mercurey 1er Cru La Mission Blanc reveals a more reserved bouquet of pear, wheat toast, waxy citrus rind and fresh peach. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and bright, though a bit shut down by its recent bottling, concluding with a saline finish. It derives from a sandy premier cru that overlooks the Clos du Roi.”William Kelley, Wine Advocate 

OUR NOTES

Built in the early 18th Century, Château de Chamirey has a unique position on the Mercurey vineyard. The Domaine consists in 37 hectares reflecting the diverse soils and micro climates found within the appellation. In 1934, the Marquis de Jouennes, as a forerunner, decides to bottle the wines of Château de Chamirey, at the Domaine. Then, his son-in-law, Bertrand Devillard, carried on his work and extended the Domaine in the best terroirs of Mercurey, to reach its present size of 95 acres. Nowadays, Amaury et Aurore Devillard represent the 5th generation of Burgundy people, wine’s men and women.

TECHNICAL SHEET

Terroir: Our vineyard La Mission is composed in 3 small plots and owned at 100% by Château de Chamirey. Vines were planted between 1961 and 1997

Surface: 1,9240 hectares (4,75 acres)

Climat & Soil: East/South-west facing plots established on a hilltop above Premier Cru 'Clos du Roi'. Clay/limestony/sandy soil, deep and draining

Winemaking: 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

Ageing: Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 litres barrels during 15 months with around 20% of new barrels. We only use light toasted French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests. Light filtration before bottling

Pairing: scallops or mushroom risotto, cheese like Tomme or Comté
