The Chateau de Mercey, built in the 16th Century at the Southern limits of the Côte de Beaune.The vineyard estate extends over 41 hectares principally on land around the Chateau itself.
Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune parcels are lyre-shaped. This technique allows the sun to shine within the vine rows and ensures quick ripening and prevents diseases.
The grapes are hand harvested then pressed in a pneumatic press. The alcoholic fermentation and the maturation are carried out in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels during 14 months (12 months in oak barrels)
The malolactic fermentation is completed at 100%.
