Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
Tasting notes: "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, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91+/100.
How to Enjoy: The Mercurey Premier Cru 'La Mission' monopole 2017 will perfectly pair with scallops or mushroom risotto, as well as fruity cheeses as Tomme or Comté.
About the winery: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.
