En Primeur | Domaine Elodie Roy

 We are delighted to introduce this exciting new domaine to our portfolio with the 2020 vintage. Vineyards are in Elodie Roy’s blood. She grew up at this 10-hectare domaine developed by her grandfather Robert and father Pierre, in the most southerly appellation of the Côte de Beaune, Maranges. Her eyes light up when she talks about her idyllic childhood enjoying the beauty of her surroundings.

After university, realising law and banking were not for her, it wasn’t practical for Elodie to immediately return to the family domaine, so she sought to cut her teeth in wine production elsewhere. She couldn’t have chosen better than 11 years assisting Anne Gros in Vosne Romanée. After such an extraordinary apprenticeship, in 2018 Elodie was eager to return and take over the family estate in her own right.

Maranges became an individual appellation in 1988. Historically it was seen as a white wine appellation but in recent years, thanks to a group of highly committed vignerons, it has carefully been building a reputation as a source of fine Pinot Noir: a development highlighted in superb fashion by these wines. 2020 is Elodie’s third vintage and it is exciting to see her plans for her winery. This will allow her to increase the proportion of her crop she sells under her own label. This is most definitely an estate to watch for the future.

We’re limiting purchases to 1 or 2 cases per wine due to high demand. Please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com to discuss larger quantities.

    Elodie’s Bourgogne vineyards on the edge of the village sit on clay soil. They have a more northerly exposure, enjoying the sunshine from around 9 a.m. This makes these vineyards beautifully placed to handle the current climate changes and maintain lower alcohol levels. Refreshing red cherry and raspberry fruits, sweet in nature. With fine, sandy tannins, this is easy and approachable.

    The 2020 Bourgogne Pinot Noir comes from north-facing, flat, clayey soils, which Roy explained is advantageous in warm seasons. The alcohol is a whole degree less than her Hautes-Côtes. The vines were planted between 1963 and 1965 and fermented in concrete tanks with around 20% whole bunch. This has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet of crushed strawberry, orange pith and light morello cherry scents. The palate is well balanced, the 20% new oak (Damy) nicely integrated, with more density than the Hautes-Côtes. Cranberry and blackberry notes surface toward the finish. Drink over the next 4–5 years. Closure: Nomacork. Drink 2022 - 2027

    This is a lower-lying village cuvée with vineyards bordering the commune of Santenay. The fruit is 100% destalked, allowing its true Pinot characteristics to shine. Bright crimson colour, this is a very charming style with just 30% new oak. There is a tinge of Moroccan spice and nutmeg, with an attractive tightness on the finish.

    The 2020 Maranges La Rue de Pierres comes from vines planted in 1987/88 in a steeper vineyard than La Goty. This is 100% de-stemmed, with maceration over 20 days in concrete vats. It has a light, quite floral bouquet, though I suspect that the recent bottling denuded it of the fruité that will emerge with bottle age. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, fleshy red cherry and strawberry fruit, fine acidity and attractive transparency toward the finish. Just give this 12 months to settle. Drink 2023 - 2028

    2020 is Elodie’s first vintage producing this wine as a single lieu-dit. In her view, it is always such a profound wine that it warrants being sold as an individual cuvée. With 60% whole bunch fermented fruit and 40% new oak, this is a very structured style, with masses of dark hedgerow fruits. It has a wild gamey Pinot personality and tremendous length on the finish.

    The 2020 Maranges Le Goty, from 0.28 hectares, suffered a lot of millerandé bunches this year, resulting in a production of 1,600 bottles. This cuvée contains 50% whole bunch. It presents a more tensile bouquet than the La Rue de Pierres, the fruit a little darker and riper by comparison, and more plummy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the 45% new oak lending depth, and quite peppery and spicy toward the finish. This is a fine Maranges to drink over several years. Drink 2023 - 2028
