The Wine

The 2019 vintage is one that possesses both concentration and elegance. The mouthfeel here is always a delight - racy, light, pure, and saline with dark cherry fruit – always a very sensual wine. The grapes come from the following lieux-dits: Pimentiers, Peuillets, and Planchots that provide for a wonderful young Burgundy with real depth and persistence in the mouth. The old vines no doubt contributing to give the wine a good sappy richness and great silky length. Excellent and will make a magic bottle in 6-7 years if you can keep hands off! AGWI

‘The quality of these wines is nothing short of phenomenal compared to the usual quality of the respective appellations’ Allen Meadows, Burghound

I very much love the style of the wines from Catherine and Claude Maréchal, as they are very classically styled wines that are long on their soil signatures and short on cellar tricks or irrationally exuberant use of new oak. The family does not work with the most exalted of appellations, but I have yet to have an example from Maréchal that was ever anything short of exemplary for its level and village. These are beautifully made wines that deserve a spot in any conscientiously stocked Burgundy cellar and are the absolute Promised Land for those who crave a bit of value in their Burgundy shopping.
John Gilman, A View from the Cellar

Claude Maréchal is a prime example of how the producer should be your first and most important focus in selecting wines. He has but a single premier cru, Les Lavières in Savigny-les-Beaune; other holdings are either Côte de Beaune village or regional appellations, yet he consistently produces wines of outstanding quality.
Claude Kolm, The Fine Wine Review

About the Wine Maker

Catherine and Claude Maréchal have been stand outs in Burgundy thanks to the precise, elegant and finely scented wines they produce from their small holdings scattered on six Côte de Beaune communes. Claude began the domaine in 1981 and in the mid 1980’s he met Henri Jayer (The ‘Godfather of Burgundy: 1922-2006), who became a huge source of inspiration and learning. Since then Maréchal has, year after year, honed his skills and today offers incredibly fine wine, among the greats in Burgundy. These wines offer everything one wants in Burgundy but that is so hard to find - admirable concentration, purity and finesse combined with texture and balance that will see these wines evolve over many years. Claude's wines are not expensive for top level Burgundy, something very rare these days. We have stocked every Vintage release of the Maréchal vins since coming into Oz, which speaks for itself! The quality of these wines is nothing short of phenomenal compared to the usual quality of the respective appellations’
