Dry Wine
Sweet Wine

This indicator represents the perceived style from the driest to the sweetest.  Sometimes two wines can have the same quantity of residual sugar but taste differently according to the grape used.  “A” is the driest like a Muscadet and “E” the sweetest like a Sauternes.

A fine richer style of Burgundy, containing minerally flavours backed with a little oak. From Chardonnay vines with an average age of 30 years Clos Rochette is one of Faiveley’s “monopoles” and whilst Mercurey is better known for its reds than its whites, this is a seriously well-made white that rivals a good wine from the Côte de Beaune. From a great year.
