Tremendous bargain End of Vintage Special
2 in stock
Marsannay is a relatively new Burgundy appellation (created in 1987) but an ancient and well respected source of fine wine. It is located south of Dijon at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits just a few villages past Gevrey-Chambertin. The producers of Marsannay have worked hard to establish its reputation after years of quasi-abandonment with remarkable results in the last 20 to 25 years. Even though there has been an influx of producers from Gevrey Chambertin and Vosne Romanee buying into and unlocking the potential of these wonderful terroirs there is still great value to be had in the wines of Marsannay.
Philippe Collotte has taken over the family holdings (one of the original old families of Marsannay) of fully mature vineyards in prime position above the village. He has also recently purchased some mature vineyards of 40 years age in both Gevrey Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. This a source of very attractively priced red Burgundy from a young producer who is making great strides in the quality of wines produced.
Made by Isabelle Collotte (studied at Beaune working with her father Philippe), her deft winemaking touch is clearly highlighted in this blueberry and red fruited, complex, silky-textured Burgundy and has launched the domaine on an exciting upward trajectory. Pinot Noir hails from several old vine sites 40 to 55 years old located just above the village – these holdings will become 1re cru fruit in the next few years. This wine is aged half in tank and half in barrel with 25% new oak and is made in a refined, silky and approachable style to be enjoyed for its vibrant fruit. This feminine expression is a tremendous bargain … perfumed and pure with real depth of fruit and fine grained tannins on the palate. Sante Vive La France! Cork 13% Alc.
