Our oenologists' opinion
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Burgundy clay-limestone soils confer local wines a fine and elegant character. The clay composition differs greatly within the sames plots and strengthen the notion of terroirs.
Domain and appellation
Château de Marsannay
Neighbour to Dijon in the Côte de Nuits, the Château de Marsannay spreads across 34 hectares with 26 hectares within the Marsannay appellation and 8 hectares in Côte de Nuits appellations.
- Terroir: Mainly located on a limestone soil, the vineyard lays on a typical Burgundy soil that is made of several different layers. This geological specificity is typical of Burgundy and strengthens the concept of terroir. The vineyard is located at 250/280 m.
- Viticulture: Much care is given to the soils with partial grassing operations and plowing. The disbudding process aims at giving the grapes some space. The harvests are hand-picked and thoroughly sorted out on a table.
- Vinification: A cold maceration is followed by an alcoholic fermentation with a pigeage. The wines age in oak barrel in a typical Burgundy arched cellar.
