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.

History

Located in the north of Burgundy, in Yonne department, the appellation stretches over around 20 communes that cover the hillsides running alongside the pretty Serein Valley.

The most recent list of Premiers Crus was issued in 1986. 79 hamlets figure on the list and cover a surface area of approximately 700 ha. The winegrowers of Chablis grouped together these hamlets under the names of 17 “climats” or single vineyards. 

Located on the right bank of the Serein river, from well-exposed plots in the communes of Chichée and Fleys. The vines grow on gentle slopes, and thrust their roots in marls from the Kimmeridgian era (150 million years ago) the famous terroir of Chablis made from different layers of marls and marly-limestone, and characterized by the presence of little oysters that play a great part in making Chablis wines the way they are.
