Château de Chamirey overlooks the village of Chamirey and was built in the 18th century. An elegant château influenced by the Italian architecture, looking down on a French garden. Built on a rocky headland, Château de Chamirey has a unqiue position on Mercurey vineyards. Nowadays, the Domaine is owned and run by Amaury et Aurore Devillard who represent the 5th generation of winemaking in Burgundy within this family. In 1934, their grand-father, Marquis de Jouennes decided to bottle the wines of Château de Chamirey at the Domaine. His son-in-law, Bertrand Devillard carried on his work and has extended the holdings of Domaine in the best terroirs of Mercurey, to reach its present size of 95 acres.

This wine is produced from four parcels that total 3ha on the east-facing slopes of this premier cru. After a brief cold soak, the wine is fermented using native yeasts with a high proportion of whole clusters. The fermenting wine is punched down fairly vigorously before ageing in cask for 15 months (25% new). Despite the vigorous extraction, the wine is notably silky and generous; the red and black berry fruit has a pleasant mineral cast, and the wine is notable for its freshness. Tannins are well managed, but firm at the end. Drink: 2023-2040; Rating: 93 Points; Charles Curtis MW; Decanter

Here the wood treatment is no longer subtle though neither is it invasive on the decidedly ripe aromas of poached plum, cassis and discreet earth nuances. The lush, suave and exceptionally rich medium-bodied flavors possess excellent volume on the lightly mineral-inflected finish. This somewhat woody effort is sufficiently forward that it could be enjoyed young or easily held for mid-term cellaring. Drink: 2026+; Rating: 89-92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
