Lemon lime-stonnnnne babeee. Very mineral. Needs a side of fries or a side of anything really but would also be fine solo but...could use fry fat.

Really fun. Somewhat full mouthfeel, almost a hint of dairy, strawberries, dried herbs, low abv - 12.5, sushi worthy and downright drinkable.

On the nose, perfumed, candied fruits of strawberries, watermelon, cherries & Rainer cherries. Ballpark chewing gum, soft, powdery chalkiness and pink rose petals. The mouthfeel is round, ripe and fresh. Fruits are; ripe strawberries, watermelon, cherries & Rainer cherries. Ballpark chewing gum, roses petals and really like the soft, delicate, powdery chalkiness and minerality. Acidity is round, soft and mouthwatering. The long finish is round, fresh and delicious. The 2016 yield was about 1/2 of normal. Photos of; the Marasanny vineyard being harvested, outside shot of the Domaine & their stainless tanks in the the cellar as well as Cyril. Producer history and notes...Domaine Charles Audoin lies in the village of Marsannay-la-Côte. Descended from a long line of wine growers passing down from father to son, Charles Audoin took over the family property in 1972 with his wife Marie-Françoise, an oenologist by training. Located within the commune of Marsannay-la-Côte. Domaine Charles Audoin began with only three hectares but the estate has grown to nearly 35 acres with a diversity of soils. After taking over his father’s five acres of vineyards, Charles Audoin and wife Marie-Françoise developed the estate through the restoration and the purchase of new lots. Their vines are over 45 years of age on average and have a south-eastern orientation. Cyril prefers lower yields and has less intensive extraction for softer and more elegant wines. Happy Bastille everyone!

Excellent rose from Burgundy. Light and elegant with bright acidity. Wild berries, orange peel and wet stones.

A gutsy and soulful style of rosé I wish more practitioners in the new world attempted to emulate, rather than using Pinot noir to attempt a Provençal style of rosé, which can lead to innocuous and unsensational results. Marsannay shows that rose can be kind of badass.
