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.

Clos de Vougeot is and will always be much more than just a wine. This appellation is a the standard bearer, the emblem of the whole Côte d’ Or...

The measurements of this vineyard alone are enough to make it exceptional with over 50,59 ha of Grand Cru vines, including 49,13 ha exclusively dedicated to the Pinot Noir. The clos slopes up from the main road, extending up to the base of the butte. Altitude is of no great importance here, varying from 240 to 270 metres.

Founded around 1110 by the monks from the nearby Citeaux Abbey, the vineyard is still surrounded by the walls dating back for 5 centuries. The vine coming from this walled ("clos") vineyard is the figurehead of the Burgundy red Grands Crus. The "Grand Cru" Appellation has been created end of July 1937.

Close to the cellars, ancestral and huge wine presses are still to be discovered in the winery. The castle, evoking the Burgundian Renaissance period, is open for visits and hosts the famous "Chevalliers du Tastevin" brotherhood's diners called "chapitres", the greatest "table d'hôte" in France !

Grape variety

The soil in the upper part of the clos is a mix of clay and brown gravel soil, the middle part is also very stony on top. In the lower part of the vineyard, the soil deepens and becomes more and more clayey which lends firmer structure to the wines.
