Domaine Charles Audoin Marsannay Les Longeroies 2012 75cl
More fruit and more depth. Much more bright fresh fruit and floral notes, nudging into aromatic floral and pretty grapes. Streak of freshness going through it. Depth but not beefy. Sort of haunting.
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.
