Goedhuis, December 2019
A superb location in the appellation and a contender for premier cru promotion. Les Longeroies lies in the north of the village, and its water retaining clay soils aided the vines in the dry summer months. With intense currant and dark cherry aromas, this balances a striking dark fruit intensity, with soft sandy tannins and a fresh crunchy finish.
Burghound, January 2020,
This too is quite ripe but there is slightly better freshness to the more floral-inflected red currant and wild berry aromas. The supple, round and quite suave medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, sappy and lingering finish that also firms up noticeably. A wine that could be enjoyed after only 5 years or so of age or held to good effect for 10 to 12 years. Drink 2028+
Jancis Robinson, January 2020,
Mid crimson. Pretty fruit – fragrant and dark red. This has real depth of fruit as well as lovely freshness with suggestion of some whole bunch but not marked. Tannins are definite and already smooth. Lovely wine. GV (JH) Drink 2023-2028
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.
