A full-bodied and delicate Fixin red wine
Château de Marsannay, located in the heart of the Côte-de-Nuits appellation, covers an area of 34 hectares. Varying between 250 and 280 metres in altitude from the south of Dijon to the commune of Vosne-Romanée, the terroir of the estate expresses through its mosaic of plots all the nuances and distinctive features of these great Burgundy terrains.
As the first destination on the Burgundy Grand Crus route, the Château de Marsannay oversees a 40-hectare vineyard in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, two prestigious Burgundy appellations.
This 2022 from Château de Marsannay is a wine from Fixin Village produced from a 0.25-hectare vineyard. Facing south at the bottom of the hill, the vines rest on a clay-limestone soil mixed with cone scree and clayey limestone.
Winemaking and ageing

Alcoholic fermentation was accompanied by punching down and pumping over to advance extraction. Ageing for 13 months in barrels (25% new), completed with a further 3 months of ageing in the mass.
Pinot Noir (100%).
