Antonin Rodet has been rhyming with Mercurey since 1875, the year of the founding of the House, by Antoine Rodet, known as Antonin. We cultivate the vineyards of the Domaine du Ch teau de Rully and Domaine du Ch teau de Mercey (80 hectares) and we are responsible for their exclusive distribution around the world. Because the House chooses to propose a vast choice of Burgundy appellations: from the Maconnais to the C te de Nuits passing through the C te de Beaune and C te Chalonnaise. A wide choice to satisfy the requirements of our customers. We work in partnership with growers in a manner to ensure the continuity of the Rodet style and its recognized quality. To ensure high-quality grapes, we have embraced the concept of 'viniculture', a word which is the contraction of 'vinification' and 'viticulture'. The function of the vinicultarist incorporates two distinct and essential phases in winemaking: work in the vineyard and in the cellar. Anne-Laure Hernette is our viticulturist and ambassador. She creates blends and guarantees the consistency of quality and style. She also chooses the best available grapes. She works hand-in-hand with Georges Piazzon, the estate vineyard manager and his team to follow the vine development and advises on viticultural practice. The style of Antonin Rodet wines combines finesse and elegance and respects the characteristics of each wine.
