Goedhuis, December 2012
At the northern tip of the appellation, this royally named vineyard produces a wine with great intensity of dark berryfruit flavours. This is a wine with density and volume andhighlights why Marsannay is set to become considerably more prominent on our tables in years to come.
Burghound, January 2013,
A beautifully cool and airy nose of red pinot fruit, dried floral hints and spice nuances givesway to round, delicious and mineral-driven flavors that possess first rate intensity before terminating in a mouth coating, clean and balanced finish. This is a firmly structured effort that is fashioned in an understated style. (89-91)/2018+
Domaine Charles Audoin
Rugby-loving Cyril is the 5th generation of Audoins in the commune of Marsannay, the Côte de Nuits’ most northerly appellation covering 400 hectares. Today Marsannay is rightly gaining the recognition it deserves as a fine source of high-quality red wines, not least thanks to Cyril’s efforts, amongst others. Indeed, the commune has 14 lieux-dits which have been proposed to the INAO for a long overdue upgrade to 1er Cru status. Whilst this might not be immediate, it reflects the respect that Marsannay and its best vineyards are rightly held in today.
The most northerly appellation of the Cote d'Or, Marsannay is also the only appellation authorised to produce red, white and rose wine. Only created in 1987, this is an interesting area where quality is improving. Top producers include Bruno Clair, Meo-Camuzet and Denis Mortet.
