    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château de Marsannay, Marsannay, Clos du Roy, 2013

    A cuvée made from a plot of 70-year-old vines of which only two barrels were made. Intense, dense spicy dark fruit flavours with good focus and freshness. Complex undergrowth and earthy characteristics play perfect foil to the rich, spice-infused forest berry fruit.

    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    Medium bright red. Slightly diffuse aromas of cherry, strawberry, spices and earth. Riper and more penetrating than the basic Marsannay bottling, showing decent intensity and inner-mouth lift to the flavors of dark cherry, spices and herbs. Still a bit spiky with acidity but this wine has decent material to support its tannins. Not bad. (Unfortunately, my sample of the Marsannay Les Longeroies was corked.)

    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.
