2014 Domaine Coillot La Charme Aux Pretres Marsannay
I popped into our tasting room today to simply heat up my coffee when I walked in on Steve and Stu from our shop tasting a line up of new possible wines to bring into the shop. There was Beaujolais from the red hot 2015 vintage, a stunning 2015 Bordeaux, a Sancerre Rouge, and then ... a white and red Burgundy.
I grabbed a glass.
Wines were good.
The Red Burgundy ... WAS RIDICULOUS.
I knew nothing about the pricing when I tasted through - but I saw the wine was from Marsannay ... and was PUMPED to see that!!! You might ask why ... and for me, the answer is simple. I knew the wine was not terribly expensive as Marsannay is usually a source for big time value. When I see wines like this - my eyes light up because these are the wines I love to drink and recommend.
While many may overlook wines from Marsannay ... this wine - is EXACTLY the reason why you shouldn't. The wine is the 2014 Domaine Coillot Marsannay "La Charme aux Pretres". It's $29.99 per bottle. It drinks incredible right now - such a food friendly Pinot!!!
Medium bodied with great structure and an elegant mouthfeel. Made in a bright style that shows of layers of pretty fruit and a long finish. It's an awesome bottle of red Burgundy at a price far less than what you would expect.
