Same as for any other planet, the point where if you were standing there the sun would be directly overhead. Or are you asking for the point in space where Mercury reaches perihelion? The longitude of perihelion is 77.45645 degrees. This is measured from the first point in Ares, which is where the sun is at vernal equinox (on Earth).
