This vineyard takes its name from “Le Clos du Roi”, as one of the hereditary vineyards of the Dukes of Burgundy. Thus, for instance the Clos du Roy in Chenôve was originally called "Le Clos du Duc". In Aloxe–Corton and Beaune, there are also two Le Clos du Roi estates that belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy. In Mercurey, Le Clos du Roy first belonged to the Montaigu family.

Karine Moréteaux

Chanzy's expert advice

Serving temperature: 15°C

Rich and fleshy, this Mercurey, from the heart of this district of great wines, gives satisfaction to steaks and chunks of beef and lamb, braised, or in sauce.

food and wine pairing

Roast pork adopts this wine due to its rich aroma - as does simmered poultry. Exotic dishes also give it compliments. On the cheese board, this wine matches well with soft cheeses and also mature cheeses.
