Olivier Halley, owner of Chateau de Marsannay, is passionate about the terroir at his fingertips and the great wines of Burgundy - both past and future. His careful guidance over the last decade has led to a renewed renaissance for this estate, striving for outstanding expressions with every vintage. 2017 is the picture of balance, with a fresh bouquet of ripe red fruit and lovely, integrated acidity on the palate. Subtle, smoky notes and spice add nuance and complexity to this supple, medium-bodied Marsannay.
The 2017 Marsannay is a slightly darker, sappier, spicier wine that still has plenty of richness and depth. Black raspberries, smoked herbs, earth, and violets notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with good acidity, beautiful balance, and a great finish. This is another beautiful wine from this team.
