About this winery

Since 1934 this Château has produced its own bottles and the Devillard family is in its 5th generation of wine growers passionate about grapes and wine. Located in Mercurey in the greater Burgundy region, the 37 hectare vineyard benefits from all the typical attributes of the region, which the Devillards combine with rigorous vinification, always waiting for the maximum maturity of the fruits before starting their work.

William Kelley, June 2020

The 2018 Mercurey is showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of plums, cherries and spices. Medium-bodied, supple and lively, it's charming and expressive.

Un pinot mûr, frais et fin, très marqué par les cerises rouges, plus charnu et harmonieux que l’an dernier. Ce fruit juteux plaira à tous, son boisé est très bien intégré.
