Leroy Mercurey 1985
Mercurey is a village in the Côte Chalonnaise sub-region of Burgundy. It is one of the five communal titles of the Chalonnaise and produces predominantly red wines from the Pinot Noir grape variety. The appellation's relatively rare Mercurey Blanc wines are made from Chardonnay and account for around 10 percent of the total output. The Côte Chalonnaise was once known as the Région de Mercurey, which gives an idea of how important this particular appellation is to the wider region.
The classic Mercurey wine is deeper in color, more full-bodied and also longer-lived than its counterparts from the other Chalonnaise communes. This is the result not only of the excellent terroir but also of the more quality-focused appellation laws. The maximum yield for crops here is closer to the stringent regulations of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune than it is to the slightly more relaxed rules that apply to the rest of the Chalonnaise.
The Mercurey appellation was created in 1936 and covers the wines of Mercurey itself, plus those of neighboring Saint-Martin-sous-Montaigu. Mercurey is by far the most prolific of the five Chalonnaise communal appellations, producing more wine than its neighbors Rully and Givry combined (approximately 3,000,000 liters). This large output comes from a dense patchwork of vineyards covering around 650 hectares (1600 acres) of rolling limestone hillsides.
