THIS WINE’S STORY

Just under a hectare of vines.

The parcel of Mercurey La Plante Chassey has been in the family for over a hundred years.

15% of it is planted to Pinot Beurot yielding a super delicate and highly aromatic wine.

Dominique Derain is attached to this family vineyard. He has a lot of memories there when he was helping his grand-father during his childhood.
