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.

Coteaux Bourguignons is a quite new appellation in Burgundy, created in 2011, with a name that evokes terroir and expertise. A wine that allows consumers to gain access to high-quality pure Burgundy wines, offering to the wine-lover the joy of discovery, the pleasure of tasting and the opportunity to learn more about this famous region.

As a regional appellation, l’Esprit d’Antonin Coteaux Bourguignons comes from selected vineyards in the South of Burgundy, mainly from the Côte Chalonnaise, historical and geographical cradle of Maison Rodet.

Grape variety

For this special tribute cuvee, Gamay, the famous grape that made the pleasant and fragrant red wines from Beaujolais and Mâconnais so well known, is blended with the red Burgundie's king variety Pinot Noir.


The vines, facing South and South-East, grow mainly on limestone soils often combined with marl and clay.

Vinification and maturing

According to the Burgundian method, grapes were fully destemmed. Maceration and fermentation were conducted in concrete tanks with cap-punching twice a day during two weeks under maintened temperatures, between 26 and 28°C. (78-82°F.).

After the pressing, the temperatures were lowered in order to preserve the fruit aromas. The wine was then transferred to stainless-steel tanks to keep maximum fruit flavours. Malolactic fermentation was 100% completed to enable the wine to soften and prepare for bottling.

Wine and food pairing

Drink with all type of delicatessen, cold and cured meats, red meat and cheese but also exotic dishes such as coucous, chili con carne, fajitas and tajine.
