White wine represents only 5% of the plantings in Mercurey but it is a very significant proportion. Mercurey blanc has a taut mineral edginess to it that marries well with the ample apple and butter notes. The acidity is crisp and it is a wine that should be drunk within a few years of bottling.
Vinification & Ageing

Clean and bright this wine is more structured, with concentrated flavours of citrus, butter and cream with a floral touch. The palate is lively and smooth, full bodied with fresh balancing acidity, and a warm long finish.
