Notes

A destalked Marsannay offering a darker more powerful side than the Château’s other Marsannay cuvées. With this power comes focus, offering wonderfully precise sloe and bramble fruit, beautifully etched tannins, with a savoury minerally, gravelly quality underpinning the ripe crushed black fruits. Excellent. A cuvée made from a plot of 70 year-old vines planted stony soils with a clay subsoil. A great vineyard and surely a candidate for 1er Cru status if Marsannay ever wins that right.

Château de Marsannay

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.
