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.

Regional appellation of the Mâconnais wine-growing district (dept. of Saône-et-Loire) in the South of Burgundy. Grapes are harvested in Lugny commune.

The word VILLAGES or the name of the commune of origin, just as LUGNY here, may only be added to the word MÂCON for wines harvested within the defined area of the MÂCON-VILLAGES appellation consisting of 26 named communes and grouped together.

Grape variety

100% Chardonnay.


The terroir in the Mâconnais is quite different than that of Burgundy’s northern regions. Here it is clay, silica or granite-based. It is particularly because of these differences in terroir that the wines made from the Chardonnay grapes harvested in this region have a mineral freshness about them that is a delight for those who like a change from the warmer more honeyed flavoured white wines of the Côte d’Or just north of the Mâconnais.

Vinification and maturing

Vinification takes place in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is partially aged in tanks and partially aged in barrels.
