The 2017 vintage is one that I think is greatly suited to early to mid-term drinking. The mouthfeel here is always a delight – racy, light, pure, and saline with dark cherry fruit – always a very sensual wine. The grapes come from the following lieux-dits: Pimentiers, Peuillets, and Planchots that provide for a wonderful young Burgundy with real depth and persistence in the mouth. The old vines no doubt contributing to give the wine a good sappy richness and great silky length. Excellent and will make a magic bottle in 6-7 years if you can keep your hands off!

Since 1981, Catherine and Claude Maréchal have been making precise, elegant and finely scented wines from their 10 hectares scattered on six Côte de Beaune communes. Inspired by Henri Jayer, the Maréchal’s offer incredibly fine wines, which are pure and sleek with vibrant fruit and great potential to age.
The grapes are hand-harvested ripe and no chemical fertilisers are used. The bunches are hand-sorted and gently de-stemmed before vinification using natural yeasts. Matured in oak barrels for between 10 and 15 months. These are the complete Burgundy wines – with admirable concentration, purity and finesse combined with texture and balance.
