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.

In the Cote Chalonnaise, birthplace of viticultural Burgundy, Mercurey is one of the oldest terroirs which has always enjoyed an excellent reputation. Mercurey is also the native village of Maison Antonin Rodet.

The village inherited its name from the Romans: when they settled in the region, they built a temple in tribute to Mercury, their patron God of commerce and financial gain.

Mercurey is a communal appellation which includes 31 Premier Cru climats. Located in the north of the Côte Chalonnaise, more than 90% of the wine produced under the appellation Mercurey are red wines. They extend on 596 ha, of which 143 are Premiers Crus. White wines are produced on 85 ha, including 13 ha of Premier Cru.

The vines grow at heights of 230 to 320 meters on marls and marly calcic soils of limestone.

Vinification and maturing

The Pinot Noir grapes are handpicked, sorted at the arrival at the winery and 100% destemmed before 18 to 20 days of maceration and fermentation in wooden vats under controlled temperatures and with punching twice a day according to the Burgundian tradition.

The malolactic fermentation is 100% achieved and followed by maturing and ageing in oak barrels (including 20%) for around 12 months.
