Goedhuis, December 2021
A terrifically bright fruit expression of bilberry and sloe giving a lovely sensation of sweetness and ripeness of fruit. The tannins have a fine sandy texture and the youthful acidity gives the wine a lovely edgy brightness.
Burghound, January 2022,
This is aromatically similar to the Bourgogne but with a certain coolness and even fresher fruit. There is more volume and richness to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that possess slightly better concentration while delivering better depth and persistence. Drink 2025+
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.
