Fresh sappy, cherryish nose leads to a supple cherry fruit palate. Light, juicy and vibrant but quite grippy. Rating 84 - Jamie Goode's Wineanorak (APR/2010)
A fresh and quite floral nose of earthy and mildly rustic red berry fruit aromas that leads to round, supple and nicely detailed flavors that possess both good intensity and persistence though the finish is a bit dry. 2011+ Rating 85-87- Burghound.com (APR/2010)

Marsannay is the village which marks the northern gateway to the Côte d’Or on leaving Dijon, the capital of Burgundy and home to the Ducs de Bourgogne. This village marks the beginning of the Route des Grands Crus which follows the N6 highway through the Côte d’Or. The wines are renowned for being sturdy and robust due to the rich iron-based soil, they have an intense bouquet of red fruit and a mouth-filling, silky palate with a distinct gamey character and great tannic appeal.. Marsannay received its Appellation Contrôlée as recently as 1987 in recognition of the consistently high quality of its wine.
