The Wine

From a high slope facing Monthelie this is always a superbly high toned wine with a beautiful, very sensual aroma. Gorgeous cherry stone and crushed strawberry with a floral lift and deep mineral depth. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very soil-driven in personality, with a sappy core of stunning fruit, ripe, seamless tannins and great focus and grip on the very long, very elegant and vibrant finish. 

From Grand Poissots on the limit with Brouillards
Another wine that starts with a floral attack over silky dark-red fruit. Fuller, also full of energy, mineral great finishing. Easily the best finish – a little harder to start – have a little patience, but excellent! Bill Nanson, 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.
