About the producer

Domaine de Suremain comprises 18 hectares of vines spread across some of Mercurey’s finest appellations. The property has been in the same family for seven generations and is currently run by Yves Suremain, his wife Marie-Hélène and their son Loïc. Vineyards are situated on the high-slopes and mid-slopes facing to the south and east, in the heart of the appellation. These holdings include no less than 6 different red Mercurey including five 1 er Crus. They also produce one white Mercurey from the 1 er Cru En Sazenay. In all vineyard work the family philosophy is to respect nature, following a “lutte raisonnée” approach, adapting their work and treatments to vintage climatic conditions. Harvest is gathered by hand into small crates before being carefully sorted on ‘une table detri’. Fermentations are carried out in open oak cuves of 50-100hl, cru by cru. Sensitively judged égrappage & pigeage are applied depending on the cru and the vintage. Wines are then matured in French oak barriques (10-15% new) for 14-18 months
