Patriarche Mercurey Rouge

The history of Patriarche was written by audacious men and women starting in 1780 in Beaune. The traditional care of the winemaking methods make their wines a bench-marking classic of the regional style with a lot of freshness and great balance. This vineyard in the largest AOC of the Côte-Chalonnaise, which was recognized only in 1936, is located on marly-argile-calcareous soil which gives nice aromas and great minerality to the whites and delicate elegance to the reds.
