Goedhuis, November 2018
This vineyard, like Les Longeroies, is also in the north of the commune, on hard Comblanchien limestone. It produces a grippier, firmer style of Marsannay. There is a generous dose of fruit, but also mineral, toned tannins that give it a chalky dimension.
Burghound, January 2019,
Reduction presently overshadows the fruit but there is good freshness and verve to the sleek and intense medium weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the dusty, firm and youthfully austere finish. This balanced effort will require at least a few years of patience. Drink 2024+
Wine Advocate, January 2019,
The 2017 Marsannay Clos du Roy offers up an appealing bouquet of cassis, currant leaf, potpourri and red cherries. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a vibrant, elegant profile and beautifully fine structuring tannins.
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.
