What the Domaine Belleville in the south of Burgundy conjures up in the bottle is really fascinating. The Clos l'Eveque is one of the best vineyards in the town of Mercurey, with great aging potential, which is very rare on the Côte Chalonnais. Incidentally, this exquisite vineyard was owned by the bishops of Chalon in the 16th century. Back then, it was clearly defined who was entitled to the best wine. Fortunately, today you can simply buy it without being a high clergyman.

The high age of the vines of around fifty years gives the Clos l'Eveque its outstanding depth. The Belleville Mercurey Clos l'Eveque matures for sixteen months in barriques that are around a third new. Our tip!

2022 was a vintage tailor-made for this elegant Premier Cru. This strengthens the natural finesse of this wine and is a perfect complement to the ripe fruit of the vintage. The wine has a remarkable complexity and a very good bite, is endowed with great length on the palate and is always in the best balance. A great southern Burgundy, it can hardly be better.
