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.

Village Appellation of Burgundy, produced on the following villages from the north of the Côte de Nuits : Marsannay-la-Côte, Couchey, Chenôve, Marsannay is the only communal appellation which produces wines of all three colours. Their typicity is that of the Côtes de Nuits, and their style resembles that of their neighbouring appellations Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin.

Regarded as the « Golden Gate to the Côte de Nuits », the Marsannay appellation covers the communes of Chenôve, Marsannay-la-Côte and Couchey. There is evidence of vineyards here, as is the case of the rest of the Côte, as early as the 7th century and the prestige of this vine-growing district is long-established. The Abbey of Bèze, the Bishop of Autun, the Dukes of Burgundy, and many others have owned vines here and the wines found their way to the tables of Louis XIV and Louis XVl. As late as the 19th century, some « climats » enjoyed a classification equivalent to today's Grands Crus.

Grape variety

100% Chardonnay.


The vines extend from north to south along the best parts of the hill-slope and the ground at its foot at heights of 255 to 390 metres above sea-level. Exposures range from due east to south. The soils, derived from mid-Jurassic strata, are very diverse in their composition.

Wine and food pairing

Enjoy with white meat such as poultry (fattened chicken, chicken with a mustard sauce such as à la Gaston Gérard…), veal, pork (a filet mignon with mustard sauce). Also try one with a risotto or with asian cuisine - sushi for example - which brings out the full fragrance of the Chardonnay. After some years' keeping, they can accompany classic or goat cheeses.

Ageing potential

A nice white Burgundy that can be kept in the cellars 5 years at least.

Serving temperature

Serve ideally at a temperature of 12 to 13°C. (53-56°F.)
