Winemaker's Note

Roel of Ligtmans & Marlon Steine, a Dutch couple, bought the Domaine in 2007. They were able to buy their first vineyard in 2008 and began the winemaking enterprise with the beautiful 2009 vintage. Their aim is to produce wine as naturally as possible: limited use of vineyard treatments and products, enhancement of biodiversity in the vineyard, revitalization of the soil, and hands-off winemaking. Bottles, packaging, labels, are all chosen with regards to the environment. In 2010 the roof of the winery has been transformed into a solar energy production unit.



Every vineyard from this Domain is maintained in an eco-conscious manner, using certified organic practices since 2009. This means no chemical treatments to the vine nor the soil. This wine comes from the single vineyard “Le Saut Muchiau”, 1.3 acres located in Chamirey. The plot is on a clay and limestone soil and enjoys an Eastern sunshine exposition. The average age of the vines is 45 years and the yield varies between 30 and 40hl/ha.



The fruit is manually harvested and sorted at the winery. No sulfite additions were made. Depending on the year and the cuvée, 95% of the grapes are subsequently destemmed. Grapes undergo a cold soak for 4 to 5 days before fermentation starts. Fermentation takes about 3 weeks. This wines aged in oak barrels for ten months, with 30 to 45% new oak.



This wine has a red robe and purple tints with aromas of ripe fruits like dark cherries, soft vanilla oak, and a hint of herbs. Classy and powerful, this Mercurey can be kept for 3 to 4 years.

A nice Pinot

On the palate, smooth start, lots of fruit flavors, a lot of acidity and firm tannins. Nice!

Sour but wakes up the palate

This wine needs decanting for an hour just fyi. Good structure. A solid burgundy with mineral notes. Hints of bbq and ferment on the nose.
