This premier cru, in the south of the appellation, is a south-facing sun-trap. It was the first to be picked in 2021. Its character is not unlike a Volnay - red-fruited, with a pure fruit core, lacy freshness, and just enough structure to mean it will age brilliantly, but can be enjoyed fairly young too.

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.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
