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.

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 !

Vinification and maturing

The grapes, harvested at optimum maturity were sorted a first time in the vineyard and carried in small, perforated boxes. They were sorted a second time at their arrival at the winery, before being completely de-stemmed but not crushed and put into vats. Maceration lasted approximately three weeks with regulard punching of the cap. No additives such as yeast, enzymes or tannins are used to respect the precious terroir. The wine was then aged for 15 months in 228 L. French oak barrels (no new oak).
