The Wine

This wine has some elements of the Auxey Duresses - that is power and saturation and the palate but come a little more structured and lithe. Its sensational for a Villages wine but sadly a very limited allocation this year.

3 parcels blended here. Practically 2 hectares worth. Old vines here.
Deeply coloured. The nose is enveloping, darkly fruited but pure and precise. Wide, concentrated, there’s weight and extract here. A touch of tannin, but then finishing energy too. Ooh, have patience – what a concentrated but still fresh wine. Burgundy Report

About the Wine Maker

Catherine and Claude Marechal 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 Marechal 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 Marechal 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.
