Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
Tasting notes: The Mercurey En Pierrelet white is elevaged in oak (20% new) for 12 months. It has floral and citrus (lime) aromas with light notes of vanilla. The palate is delightfully mineral and saline, very fresh and perfectly balanced.
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91/100
"Aromas of crisp orchard fruit, citrus zest and hazelnuts introduce the 2019 Mercurey En Pierrelet Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular wine that's bright and satiny." William Kelley.
About the winery: Built in the early 18th Century, Chateau 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.
