Mercurey refers to white and red wines produced in two communes in southern Burgundy: Mercurey and Sanit-Martin-sous-Montaigu. Grapes used are Chardonnay for the white (a small percentage of Pinot Blanc is also allowed), and Pinot Noir for the red; 80% of the production of Mercurey is red.

The wines are divided into two categories; Premier Cru, from single vineyards that have been rated as top quality, and then Mercurey AOC, from vineyards anywhere in the district. Both the white and red examples tend to be lighter in body than the most famous Burgundies from the Cote d’Or to the north’ combine that wit the fact that these wines are not famous, and Mercurey wines are particularly good values from the region.

The whites have delicate citrus and apple flavors, with good acidity and a light earthiness, while the reds feature red cherry fruit with delicate spice notes and medium-weight tannins. The white should be consumed within three to five years, while the reds are best enjoyed from five to seven years, although a few drink well for a decade. Pair the whites with most seafood or poultry, while the reds are ideal with duck, lamb and slightly aged cheeses. (Wine/Appellations)
