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.

History

The vineyard of Pommard is located on the Côte de Beaune, in Burgundy, between the village of Volnay to the south and the town of Beaune to the north. The Pommard appellation only produces red wines, all exclusively from Pinot Noir. The surface area of the vineyard covers approximately 300 hectares, 125 hectares of which are Premiers Crus.

The climat " Les Poutures ", whose name comes from "pâtures", covers 4 ha 12 a 74 ca on the lower part of the vineyard, in the middle of the hillside.

Vinification and maturing

Traditional Burgundian vinification.

Hand-picked, the grapes are first sorted in the vineyard and then in the cellars as soon as they arrive. After this severe sorting, they are destemmed and crushed, then put into thermo-regulated vats.

Vatting lasts 22 to 25 days. The vinification begins with a cold maceration (8°-10°C. / 46-50°F.) for 5 to 6 days, then the fermentation is carried out with the introduction of Burgundy yeasts, with daily pumping over and punching down.

The wine is then aged in 228 litre barrels, of which 35% are new, for 12 to 15 months.
