Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Château de Marsannay, Gevrey Chambertin, Champeaux, 1er Cru, 2015

Less clay influenced than most Gevreys and this comes through in the wine - rocky and tight-wound at first but the flavours gradually build on the palate revealing ripe heady notes of kirsch, rose and fruit liqueur. Paradoxically both warm and cool, there is a slim-line shape to the wine but a certain richness too. Situated on the north side of Gevrey planted on poor soils with a strong limestone influence. Aged in 100% new oak.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux 1er Cru has a smudged bouquet that lacks the detail of its peers and does not convey the same energy and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, suggesting a lot of maceration. The chewy, lightly spiced finish has plenty of substance, at the expense of the detail and delineation one would expect. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

Château de Marsannay

Since 2012 Château de Marsannay has been owned by the Halley family, at the same time they bought the Château de Meursault. They own 34 hectares of superbly situated vines, and as with Château de Meursault, have invested heavily in realising the estate’s huge potential. The Domaine is managed by Château de Meursault’s Stephane Follin-Arbelet, who is overseeing a quality revolution, but Château de Marsannay have their own winemaking team, lead by the fantastic, and award-winning, Sylvain Pabion. Winemaking is classic and adaptive, largely de-stalked but with whole bunches when necessary, a cold-soaked prior to fermentation and then ageing in a mixture of new and used oak barriques for over a year. Alongside Château de Meursault, this is on course to become one of the largest organic certified estates in the Côte d'Or.
