Mercurey was named after the Roman temple built here to honour the god Mercury. Boasting 650 ha (1,600 acres), 85 plots and 32 Premier Crus, Mercurey is the largest of the Côte Chalonnaise’s appellations. In 2005, the Albert Bichot estates took root in the Côte Chalonnaise with the creation of Domaine Adélie. With more than 4 ha (10 acres) in the Mercurey appellation, this estate produces Village and Premier Cru wines. Planted at an altitude of 345m on average, the vineyards cover a plateau whose soil is mainly composed of clay, but where the limestone bedrock comes close to the surface in areas. The Chardonnay grape is well adapted to all those conditions.
