Château Mi-Pont is a family property of 2 Ha (5 acres), which is south oriented and which is located right in the middle of the village of Mercurey. Its name comes from the nearby castle which has been built on the 15th century. “Mi-Pont” commonly means half bridge, but it has to be understood in old French where the meaning was in the middle of the bridge. And indeed, a tiny river runs through the castle, a castle built in the middle of a bridge. The particularity of this terroir comes from its soil where the rocks lie just 1 meter under the surface. It therefore cannot produce important quantities of wine, but it does help the Pinot Noir grape to concentrate the aromas of the Château Mi-Pont terroir.
