" 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. This wine has a beautiful garnet color in the glass and a delicate fruity nose with vegetal aromas coming through. In the mouth this Marsannay has finesse with balanced acids and soft tannins marrying together to produce a rounded structure with fruity flavors. Traditional open vat fermentation followed by 18 months ageing in oak cask."
