Goedhuis, December 2014
A real favourite of mine, the limited amount of topsoil creates a wine with real purity and refinement. Brilliant purple in colour, this wine is full of damsons and fresh strawberries. Great balance and a fabulously layered, classy finish. Top notch.
Burghound, January 2015,
In contrast to the Clos du Jeu this is perfumed, fresh and markedly spicy with its aromatic profile that runs toward the darker end of the fruit spectrum. There is excellent volume and ample minerality to the more complex and mouth coating finish. While I doubt that this will be accessible immediately it should be approachable with only 4 to 5 years of bottle age. Drink 2021+
Domaine Charles Audoin
Charles’s son Cyril has for years been instrumental in raising the quality and the reputation of the Marsannay appellation. With his new cellar now fully operational, he can realise the full potential of his excellent fruit grown in this underrated appellation. This domaine offers terrific consistency and excellent value for money in the northern Côte de Nuits.
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.
