ABOUT THE WINE
A 95-hectare estate (37-hectares of vineyard) covering some of the finest terroirs in Mercurey. The château, overlooking the village of Chamirey, was built in the early 18th Century, and saw a succession of owners before coming into the Devillard family through marriage. The estate began bottling its own wines in 1934, making it a forerunner in the region.

TASTING NOTES
Beautiful and deep ruby colour with a velvety aspect. The nose is expressive with small red fruits and notes of pepper and clove. In the mouth, the attack is full and lively. The mid-palate is ample with a silky texture followed by a long and fresh finish. Drinking well now, or can be cellared for 10-15 years.

FOOD PAIRING
Pairs perfectly with grilled meats but also with a chocolate cake.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Aged in French oak, 30% new, for 16 months.
