Chamirey Castle

Influenced by sixteenth century Italian architecture, this dwelling, surrounded by outbuildings and a box-tree garden, has been a family run, winemaking property for several generations. With a mutual passion for winemaking, Amaury and Aurore Devillard have followed in their ancestor, the Marquis of Jouennes’ footsteps.  The estate’s 37 hectares of vineyards planted with pinot noir vine plants, 15 of which are planted on strips in First Growth Mercurey. The 2010 vintage is a full bodied wine bursting with primary aromas. The Château Chamirey Premier Cru, La Mission 2007, full and rich with a yellowy golden robe, woody nose, offers surprising fresh butter and white flower notes. The 2007 Les Ruelles Premier Cru blend, has a velvety garnet robe with spicy hints and underlying tones of dark fruit. The same family also owns the Domaine des Perdix in Nuits Saint-Georges and the Domaine de la Ferté in Givry. 71640 Mercurey
