Marsannay is the newest AOC in Burgundy, created in 1987. Located immediately south of Dijon, it is part of the prestigious Côte de Nuits.
The "Mogottes" climat is a Domaine Michel Magnien Monopole - this means the entire vineyard parcel belongs to the Domaine making its production, a unique, rare wine.
Mogottes has a dark brown limestone, clay and mark soil which gives a powerful yet elegant wine with fine freshness and vitality.
Pair this with duck.
“Whiffs of warm earth and herbal tea can be found on the red and dark cherry-scented nose. There is a slightly finer texture to the medium weight flavors that also flash both good salinity and delineation before concluding in a youthfully austere and nicely balanced finale.” (Allen Meadows, burghound.com tasted 10 Jan 2021)
