Marsannay « En Batayard»

The Vines

Considered as the ‘golden gate’ of the Côte de Nuits, AOC Marsannay extends over the communes of Chenove, Marsannay and Couchey, and can be expressed in the three colours – white, rosé and red. Our En Batayard plot is located on the hillside of the commune of Couchey and is planted with Pinot Noir.

The soil is shallow, and the limestone rock lies directly beneath. Acquired in 2014, the vines on the plot are 30 to 40 years old. The surface area is 0.2333 hectare.


Vinification is traditional in line with all the other wines of the estate; maturation on the lees is carried out for 12 to 18 months in barrels, 30% of which are new wood.

Pinot Noir from Marsannay is intense in colour with a bouquet of red fruits (sour cherry, strawberry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry). The attack on the palate is powerful and generous; the finish is full-bodied and long.

The reds from Marsannay can be paired with cold meats, red meat or cheese from the region.
