Notes

A brilliant Marsannay from an excellent and well-draining vineyard that has a high percentage of old vines, which produces small concentrated bunches. It is a tiny plot of just 0.25ha, fermented with 50% whole bunches. Of the three barrels that were produced, one was new. The quality is clear to see, with an inviting combination of intensity and brightness on the palate, beams of light illuminating the deep fruit and focussed concentration. Embryonic, but showing great promise.

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.
