Crushed and Cured
Chanzy, Mercurey, Clos Les Bussières-Monopole, Côte Chalonnaise
A fine nose of energetic and ripe citrus with almost a ginger-spice component. Round, easy in the mouth but again there is that ginger spice. Not your typical white Mercury but beautiful none the less.
Chanzy is a 80 hectare Estate, divided between Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits with their base in Bouzeron. All of Chanzy’s wines are made with at least 90% Estate-grown fruit, practically unheard of for a Burgundy producer of this size. Chanzy owns 5 Clos including 2 Monopoles, 11 Grands Crus and 16 Premiers Crus. They are one of the few Burgundy producers to achieve Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3; the most highly regarded certification for agriculture in France.
After slow and gentle pressing, this wine is fermented and matured in 228l barrels for 14 months followed by one of ageing in stainless steel vat.
