MERCUREY 1ER CRU, CLOS MARCILLY, THE WINE ESTATE'S MONOPOLY

Le Clos Marcilly, in Mercurey, was acquired in 2011 at the same time as the property of Chassagne-Montrachet.

 

In the first year, a vast replanting program was launched.

 

2014 was thus the first vintage of this exceptional cru vinified by the estate, both in red and white.

 

2016 marked a new stage: Clos Marcilly is now the monopoly of Héritiers Saint-Genys.

THE CLOS SAINT-JEAN CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET

We are located in Chassagne-Montrachet.

 

Before the year 1000, this village drew its glory from Clos Saint-Jean, property of the Benedictine abbey Saint-Jean-le-Grand d'Autun founded by Brunehaut in 589.

 

Our cellars are located just behind the church of Chassagne-Montrachet. They are embedded in the hill of Clos Saint-Jean.

 

Long vaulted galleries in Burgundy stone jealously watch over our oak barrels.

 

This wood is adapted to the structure of Burgundy wines which can thus express all their specificities.

 

It is the place of vinification and aging of all our red and white wines.

 

It is ideal for aging in barrels because the temperature is quite stable there, between 12 ° and 14 ° C and the humidity is close to 80%.
