Antonin Rodet is rooted at heart of Cote Chalonnaise since 1875 at times of phylloxera occurring in vineyard. From generation to generation, Rodet's generations are fierce defenders of the vineyard of Southern Burgundy. They cultivate the vineyards of the Château de Rully and Château de Mercey. Their white wines are distinguished by purity and harmonious balance, while red wines are easily discernible by their consistent structure and strong aromatic potential.
