This famed parcel is cultivated solely by Château de Chamirey, which produces a wine prized for its fullness, power and aromatic richness, consisting of floral, fruity notes of citrus and vanilla (a mark of its élevage in wood). This wine can be kept for a good ten years or so, and enjoyed with refined dishes.

Mercurey 1er Cru La Mission Château de Chamirey serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Aumonières de saumon, Dinde farcie au foie gras, Langouste froide à la mayonnaise.

    Information about domain Château de Chamirey

    Owned by the Devillard family since 1934 (Domaine des Perdrix, Domaine de la Ferté), the Château de Chamirey dates from the 18th century. Today, Amaury and Aurore Devillard, who work alongside their father Bertrand, manage the 37 hectare domaine together (about half of which is classified as premier cru). The vines are on average 35 years old. Les Cinq is a cuvée made by combining the best parts of the five red premier crus of the Château de Chamirey to create this exceptional wine. One of the peculiarities of the domaine is the fact they wait for optimal maturity to harvest. The grapes are harvested manually, then sorted and destemmed.
