The Mercurey appellation is part of the vineyards of the Côte Chalonnaise and is one of the main wine names in
Burgundy. Indeed, it covers more than 400 hectares and was valued by Gabrielle d'Estrée, mistress of Henri IV. The
name takes its name from the god of commerce and messenger of the gods in Roman mythology, Mercury.

Immediately after the manual harvest, the grapes are sorted, destemmed and then carefully transported on a belt in the barrel, without pumping. For the fermentation, a cold maceration is carried out at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. The wine is aged for 12-15 months in oak barrels, 25% of which are new oak barrels.

The Prosper Maufoux Mercurey is a 100% pinot noir and has the typical intense ruby red color with purple hues. The wine has an appealing nose with notes of small black fruits such as blackberry and dark cherry. The taste is fruity and toasty, rich with silky and elegant tannins, with a silky slightly creamy finish in the aftertaste. As we advise with a lot of red wine, but certainly with Pinot Noirs, the motto is not to drink it too hot (14-15°) and to serve it in a large Burgundy glass .

Vineyard for 2019 Prosper Maufoux Mercurey Rouge

Prosper Maufoux was founded by its name bearer in 1860 in Santenay, in the south of the Côte d'Or, where it remained in the hands of the Maufoux family for almost a century and a half in 1994. In 1860, Prosper Maufoux, a notary by profession, left his office to devote himself to his passion for wine. He founded his own house in Santenay, a Burgundian village in the south of the Côte d'Or, in the heart of the vineyards. His son Cyprien looked beyond the borders and brought Prosper Maufoux wines to the tables of England, the Netherlands, and the United States. He created a culture of openness to the world at home. The takeover in 2010 by Eric Piffaut resulted in significant investments in the winery, which resulted in a huge increase in quality. Prosper Maufoux is currently housed in the Château de Saint-Aubin, where there is plenty of room to guarantee the qualities achieved for the future.
