Mercurey

Mercurey was named after Mercury, the messenger of Gods. It is the biggest wine area of the Cote Chalonnaise. Mercurey was considered as one of the best wine in Burgundy. Unfortunately, the Phylloxera decease destroyed the vines. Although Mercurey is back both in terms of quantity and quality, Red wine is full of flavor and elegant. White wine is quite similar to Cote de Beaune. The quality varies greatly from one producer to another. The Mercurey Premier Cru wines are quite similar to Pommard. They are among the best wines in Burgundy.
