Winemaker Notes

Its spicy and floral bouquet and juicy appeal make it to partner grilled fish or fish in sauce, cooked seafood, Asian cuisine, and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

Refined nose of red fruit with some floral notes, but this tightly wound wine is only just beginning to open up on the seriously structured, medium-to full-bodied palate. Imposing, fine tannins at the long, polished finish. Drink or hold.


WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Charry notes of smoked hazelnut and burnt sage lend dimension to luminous blackberry and cherry in this Pinot Noir sourced from one of Mercurey's most famous premier-cru sites. Ripe and concentrated yet cutting and fresh, the mouthwatering, elegantly structured wine is kept firm by a fine-grained grip of tannins. Hold till 2024. The wine should improve through 2035.

Maison Chanzy Winemaker Max Blondelle Winery Image
Maison Chanzy was founded by Daniel Chanzy in 1974 in Bouzeron, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy. Chanzy envisioned Côte Chalonnaise wines that would rival the greatness of the Côte d’Or and invested heavily in vineyards there. In 2013, a group of Burgundy wine lovers purchased Chanzy and have since added a second holding in Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune for a total of 163 acres planted. With full control of production from vineyard to bottling, Chanzy’s impressive range spans 40 appellations in 8 villages of Côte Chalonnaise and Côte d’Or. Chanzy is a leading producer in the Côte Chalonnaise with holdings in Bouzeron, Rully, Givry, and Mercurey. The winery itself is in the village of Bouzeron where it owns 16 hectares, including the monopole Clos de la Fortune which serves as the flagship wine. In the Côte d’Or, Chanzy owns an impressive collection of crus in some of Burgundy’s iconic appellations such as Puligny-Montrachet and Vosne-Romanée. Vineyards are farmed without the use of herbicides and pesticides, instead opting for organic fertilizers and occasional plowing between rows. Chanzy is in the process of obtaining Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE) certification. All vinification takes place in Bouzeron, where whites go immediately to press and reds are sorted on the table de tri, mostly destemmed before undergoing a cold pre-fermentation maceration for six to eight days. The long, cold maceration allows for less aggressive remontage and pigéage later in the vinification process. Fermentation occurs with selected yeast or spontaneous via pied-de-cuve, depending on the wine and vintage. Élevage varies for each wine. Wines from the basic appellations settle and ferment in tank while the crus are transferred to barrel for fermentation. Chanzy uses very little new wood and barrels range in size from the traditional 228-liter pièce mostly for our Premiers Crus and 450, 500-liter barrels to 2,500-liter foudre for our Village appellation wines. The wines receive a light fining and filtration before bottling with low amounts of sulfur oxide.

Mercurey Wine

Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy

Beloved for its deep and flavorful reds made of Pinot Noir, Mercurey is the largest and most important village in the Côte Chalonnaise of Burgundy with most of its vineyards tucked away in hillsides or stretched along the aptly-named “Golden Valley.” This valley, sheltered from the moist and cool air that funnels along at lower elevations, is ideal for ripening Pinot noir.

Mercurey follows strict yield laws, similar to those at the Côte d’Or village level, promoting the development of deep, full, concentrated and age-worthy Pinot noirs. In their youth, a chewy and rich structure supports flavors of ripe strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Age brings notes of underbrush, tobacco and cocoa.

While Pinot Noir claims the majority of Mercurey vineyard acreage, Chardonnay does grow here and produces uniqely floral and spicey scented white wines.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
