Tasting Notes

Clos du Roy is one of the finest sites in Mercurey and this comes from a parcel of 55 year old vines. The 2021 shows lovely ripe plummy aromas on the nose with a touch of rose. The palate has so much fruit concentration, density and depth supported by some silky and supple tannins. At the same time, this is fresh and very well-balanced with a long, fine, saline finish.

The Producer

Domaine Charton

Domaine Charton cultivates 11.5 hectares on excellent terroirs of the Mercurey appellation, in the Côte Chalonnaise - famous for the unique composition of its soils and for its wines with pronounced fruit characters. Mercurey encompasses 32 parcels that are classed Premier Cru. The vineyard soils are all worked at least seven times in the year, with winter mounding up, spring de-earthing and regular hoeing between the vines. This encourages the roots to develop and plunge more deeply into the earth.

At pruning time, they leave only 5 or 6 buds per vine, thus limiting yields and allowing the grapes to achieve greater maturity. They intervene as little as possible during macerations which last around twenty days, only using wild yeasts that are naturally present on the berries.

The red Pinot Noir grapes are all destemmed and partially crushed. Alternate cap punching and pumping over allows us to capture the essence of the fruit. The white Chardonnay grapes are pressed in whole bunches and then vinified directly in oak barrels.
