Production

Les Héritiers Saint-Genys is the largest producer of white Mercurey, with 5ha of vineyards planted to Chardonnay. 2015 was the first vintage of this wine, made from the fruit of 50 year old vines farmed using reasoned agriculture. Grapes were harvested manually and carefully placed into small, well-ventilated boxes for careful transportation to the winery. Whole bunches were fermented in oak barrels in a classic vinification style. Ageing also took place in oak barrels.

Tasting notes

A savoury, toasty nose. Refined and vibrant on the palate, brightly citrus flavoured with a hint of smoky minerality and gently creamy oak. There is a lovely drying saline character to the long finish.

Food match

Roast chicken, grilled white fish, or mushrooms on toast.
