"The wine comes from vines some planted in 1954, others in the 1980s. That gives the extra concentration that is so apparent. It is a dark firm wine, structured and dense both with black fruits and with tannins. The aftertaste brings in perfumed acidity as well as emphasizing the concentration."

"Hints of VA are present on the red raspberry, spice and softly earthy nose. The supple, round and delicious medium weight flavors possess a seductive mid-palate mouth feel that contrasts somewhat with the mildly rustic finale. Again this is attractive in its fashion if not technically faultless."
"Built in the 17th century, Château de Chamirey overlooks the vineyards of Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise. In 1934, Marquis de Jouennes, father-in-law of Bertrand Devillard and grand-father of Amaury and Aurore (present owners), produced his first bottle of red Mercurey. At that time, people were already accustomed to speaking about Château de Chamirey without mentioning the appellation. It spans an area of 92 acres of which 37 are classified Premiers Crus. There are 67 acres planted with Pinot Noir and 25 with Chardonnay grapes. They all perfectly reflect the richness of the Côte Chalonnaise terroir." -Importer
