    Winemaker Notes

    From lieux dits of Les Crais and La Croix des Champs just below the village. While the former is planted on stonier calcareous-clay soil, the latter thrives on more depth and their marriage produces very rich and elegant wines of great finesse.

    Domaine Charles Audoin is an estate that is largely responsible for putting Marsannay on the map. Initially considered a less-favorable terroir and not even given its own AOC until 1987, winemakers like Charles Audoin have shown that this is an appellation that is well worthy of recognition.

    Representing the fourth and fifth generations of vignerons, Charles and his son Cyril, who currently helms the estate, had overseen an explosion in growth and quality since the 1970s – when Charles began expanding the estate from two and a half to 14 hectares, selecting some of the best vineyard locations in Marsannay. Cyril continues the work his father started, as he continues to vinify in a very traditional manner, all in service of keeping the focus on the elegance and refinement that have become hallmarks of this estate. Farming is entirely organic with certification as of the 2018 vintage. As part of his legacy, Cyril has shepherded the move towards even further consideration of the environment when winemaking decisions are made.

    The lineage here is clear, beginning with Charles identifying the highest-quality terroir in the 1970s and continuing today. Cyril has recently invested in a new winery to improve the wine quality further. This estate has championed Marsannay among the most celebrated appellations in the Côte de Nuits. Widely recognized as a standard-bearer in the region, you need to look no further than the wines of Domaine Charles Audoin for the very best that Marsannay has to offer.

    Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

    Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

    View all products

    This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

    Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

    Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

    Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

    The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
