Built in the 17th century, Château de Chamirey overlooks the vineyard of Mercurey in Burgundy’s Côte Chalonnaise. In 1934, Marquis de Jouennes, Bertrand Devillard’s father-in-law and Amaury and Aurore’s grandfather, produced the first bottle of red Mercurey under the name of Château de Chamirey. Now the vineyard covers 37 hectares among which 15 hectares in Premier Cru reflecting the diversity of soils and microclimates composing the Mercurey appellation.

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay.

Tasting notes: The wine has a beautiful gold colour, limpid in texture. The nose is woody, grilled with aromas of dried fruits, hazelnut and white flowers notes. In the mouth, the wine is strong, rich, full bodied with tastes of toast and dried fruits.

Serving: This wine will perfectly pair with noble shellfish (crab, lobster), white meats and is a perfect aperitif wine. It can be served from now at 12–14°C or kept in cellar between 3 and 8 years.
