Marsannay Wine

for this region?

Marsannay is a Burgundy appellation created in 1987 for red, rose and white wines [although 2/3rds are red] from three communes at the northern end of the Cotes de Nuits just south of Dijon.There are no Grand Cru or Premier Cru sites as yet.It is the only village level appellation in Burgundy that allows rose wines.Other Burgundy roses come under the general Burgundy appellations.]The soils of Marsannay are unfortunately little known worldwide and the wines too often underestimated. Because the appellation does not have the prestige of its famous neighbours in the south, the wines of Marsannay are often drunk too young. Our soils give rather tannic and well-structured red wines. Waiting for 3 to 8 years according to the vintage often proves essential to maximize the qualitative potential of the wine and your pleasure.

  • Sylvain Pataille is an up and coming producer, really helping to make Marsannay a relevant village in the Cote de Nuits these days. In addition to having his own label, he's well known for being a consulting enologist at famous domaines such as Roumier. He seems like a young fellow, so it's a bit of a surprise that this is his 13th vintage of th... Read More
