The Côte de Nuits – situated in the Côte d’Or region of Burgundy, France – is best known for its Pinot Noir 🍇wines hailing from famous villages such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, etc., in which some of Burgundy’s most renowned grands and premiers cru vineyards are located such as La Tâche and Romanée-Conti … 🍷🍷
Yet the Côte de Nuits produces a small amount of white and rosé wine, too!
In fact, the appellation of Marsannay (a northerly neighbor to Gevrey-Chambertin AOC) is the only village level AOC permitting production of not only red and white wine, but rosé wine, as well; it’s gaining recognition for its ability to deliver excellent quality wine for the price (QPR)! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Here we have a Marsannay made with Chardonnay from the “Les Longeroies” vineyard 🌱, located on a gentle, southeast-facing slope ☀️ with cooling influences from the prevailing winds. 🌬️
It’s a pale gold wine with developing notes of yellow apple, pear, white nectarine, lemon curd, honeysuckle, blossom, chamomile, wet slate, delicate butterscotch, cream, brioche, honey, and crushed hazelnut.
It has a creamy texture and rounded mouthfeel, balanced and lifted by the pleasant acidity and primary fruit notes.
Domaine Régis Bouvier Marsannay Les Longeroies (2017) ABV 13%

Medium body, medium tannin, medium acidity. Earthy and floral on the nose. Red cherry, baking spice, cedar on the palate. Very nice for the price. — 6 months ago
Don’t mess with Kermit Lynch. His wines are always worth trying. Régis Minet is dominated by saffron and licorice. There is some citrus in there. But it’s hard to identify. It does matter though. I think anyone would appreciate this wine with some fish or seafood. — 9 months ago
Ripe Sancerre. Passionfruit. Fuller and less nervy than I’d expect. Climate change is having an influence on these wines. 14.1% alc. Delicious none the less. — 4 years ago
