Domaine Charles Audoin Marsannay Les Favieres 2012 75cl
On the nose you are getting an aged, lovely cherry stone and plum skin. An earthy note with some fresh floral polish to it. A silky core with very fine tannins - a traditional old fashioned burgundy.
"A jolly good Pinot Darling!" - Ben Petrie
Marsannay is already making a noise in the Côte de Nuits, and this domaine is banging a loud drum. The Route Nationale from Beaune to Dijon strays a little further East once you have passed Gevrey Chambertin, with the result that it is easy to miss the slopes of Marsannay which form the natural continuation (“combes” and all) of the Côte de Nuits. This is a very serious domaine of 13 hectares, founded in 1972, and developed in recent years by young Cyril Audoin.
