Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2015 Cyril Audoin Marsannay Charme aux Pretres rouge Magnum

This is the northern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. It is home to perhaps the noblest expression of Pinot Noir on planet Earth, if not the noblest expression of any wine on Earth; the minute yet palpable differences from single parcels of land were intuited by Cistercian monks who farmed the 'golden slope' for approximately two thousand years. From Corgoloin in the south, to Marsannay in the north, the finesse and complexity of the wines is at times both hauntingly beautiful and mind boggling. Its most celebrated villages: Nuits St Georges, Vougeot, Flagey Echezeaux, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Gevrey Chambertin, and Morey St Denis.

Price: $99.00

"(a limited production wine of around 600 bottles annually). This is the first wine in the range to reflect any appreciable amount of reduction but it’s enough to push the underlying fruit and wood scents to the background. Otherwise there is excellent detail and intensity to the concentrated and mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that terminate in an exceptionally rich finish that delivers sneaky good length. Again, moderate patience will be necessary. (89-92)/2023+" Allan Meadows
