The name Antonin Rodet has been rhyming with Mercurey in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise since 1875, when the house was founded by Antoine Rodet, known as Antonin. The Clos Rodet, a 17th Century bourgeois mansion situated in the heart of the village, is embodying the House’s historical heart, cellar and values. For decades, the visionary Rodet family did not hesitate to invest in one of the oldest terroirs in Burgundy and contributed to the business development of the House, brought the Rodet signature into international markets and enhanced its reputation to become a reference in Mercurey and far beyond the native region. Antonin Rodet Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines contributed to the international renown of the House whose consecration came with an award at the Universal Exhibition in 1900. Of noble character and fully expressive after traditional winemaking, the House wines reflect their origins with great purity.

Regional appellation of the Hautes Côtes vineyard district (dept. of Côte-d’Or) in Burgundy. The appellation, officially granted in 1961, comprises of 12 communes of the Hautes Côtes district plus the upper portions of 10 communes lying in the Côte de Beaune. In the Saône-et-Loire dept., it spreads over four communes of the Hautes Côtes as well as on the heights of three communes of the Côte de Beaune. 

The Hautes Côtes overlooks the Côte de Beaune from the west, lying between Maranges and Ladoix-Serrigny. The interior is a succession of hills and valleys. The vines cover the sunny slopes at the foot of a limestone cliff. The villages clinging to the hillsides are composed of white stone buildings lining narrow streets.

At between 280 and 450 metres above sea-level, the vineyards occupy the best- exposed sides of valleys which run east-west at right angles to the axis of the Côte. The subsoil is dominated, especially in the south, by beds of marl. The slopes are steep in some places and frequently covered with limestone scree brought down from overhanging Bajocian formations higher up.

Grape variety

100% Chardonnay.

Vinification and maturing

The harvested Chardonnay grapes are carefuly sorted and then pressed. The vinification starts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and is followed by maturing in trank and in oak barrels for a part of the cuvée (40%) for around 8 months, including 15% new oak. Blending and light filtration before bottling.

Tasting notes

Colour : Gold with green tints.
Nose : Fresh, pure perfumes of white fruits such as pear or peach and white flowers (linden).
Palate : A pleasant and lively wine with a floral attack on white fruits and almonds flavours with delicate woody notes.

Wine and food pairing

It will be the perfect companion to snails, fish dishes or stir-fries. When a little older, its increased roundness and density will bring out the best from richer dishes such as fish in sauce or crustaceans and cheeses such as the French Bleu de Bresse, goat cheeses, and cheeses of the Gruyère family.

Ageing potential

Already pleasant to drink, it can be kept in the cellar for 3 to 5 years.

Serving temperature

Serve ideally at a temperature situated between 13 and 14°C. (55°-57F.).
