The Mercurey appellation includes 32 Premiers Crus « climats ». Producing communes : Mercurey, Saint-Martin-sous-Montaigu.
The Red Mercurey has a deep colour, profound ruby. This crisp-fruited wine evokes strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. Age brings in notes of underbrush, spicy tobacco notes and cocoa beans. In the mouth this wine is rich, full-bodied,
and chewy. In its youth, the tannins of this wine lend it a mineral firmness. When aged, it is attractively rounded and meaty.
The White Mercurey is a typical Chardonnay; it is gold, it varies in its degree of paleness and is flecked with green. It boasts aromas of white flowers (mayflower, acacia), hazelnut, almond, and spices (cinnamon, pepper). A touch of flint is a trademark of this wine. Full of flavour, it is an eminently drinkable wine.
