2014 Charles Audoin Marsannay Cuvee Marie Ragonneau Rouge
"Named after Cyril's great-grandmother, from several top parcels of old vines in Marsannay such as Champs-Salomon, Les Crais, La Pucine, Herbues, and Les Echezeaux. A representation of the village rather than one single vineyard. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Cyril Audoin is part of the next generation from renowned winemaking families, and his energetic, outgoing personality is a refreshing counterpoint to wines that are among the most serious in their appellation.Cyril’s father, Charles, was a visionary in the Burgundy region, as he’d already selected and vinified the best parcels in the 1970s, before Marsannay was even an appellation. He and his wife, Marie-Françoise, an oenologist, began their domaine in Marsannay-la-Cote, in 1972.
Cyril is the fifth generation to join the family business. He continues his parents’ commitment to producing fine red, white and rosé Marsannays, primarily from single vineyards, that are well-structured and wonderfully mineral." -Importer
