2020 Marsannay, Marchand-Tawse

2020 Marsannay, Marchand-Tawse

This is drawn from a couple of parcels on the south side of the commune towards Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin. Its fruit profile is quite nervous, with an edge of cranberry and pomegranate, and some brambly, structural tannins giving it the slightly wild edge you often find in Marsannay. Lots of cracked pepper on the nose. It has body and impact.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Marsannay Village comes from two vineyards, matured in 10% new oak, offers brambly red fruit on the nose, the 10% whole bunch lending a light peppery note. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, strict, quite rigid for a Marsannay although racking will open it up.
