Winery with the Elegant Castle
The Château de Chamirey, an elegant castle of Italian influence was built in the 18th century on a rocky outcrop, a privileged location in Mercurey dominating the French gardens. In 1934, the Marquis de Jouennes, as a precursor, decided to bottle the wines of Château de Chamirey at the Domaine. Following him, his son-in-law, Bertrand Devillard, continued his work and extended the Domaine in the best terroirs of Mercurey to bring it to its current state.
