A word about the domain
It all really started in the 1930’s when the Marquis de Jouennes d’Herville, grandfather of the actual owners Amaury and Aurore Devillard, decided to bottle the first red Mercurey at the estate. This marked the creation of the Château de Chamirey as a wine estate that has since then produced some of the best Mercurey reds and whites. With 37 hectares in total, including 15 hectares of 1er Crus, Château de Chamirey is one of the largest estates of Mercurey and also one of the best in quality.  The Devillard family has always played a huge part in the reputation of the appellation by always maintaining high standards in their production. The vineyard is run in “culture raisonnée”, which limited at the minimum the use of chemicals, and using traditional winemaking techniques.
