The 2017 Marsannay Rouge, which will be bottled in March, has a very pure bouquet of crushed strawberry and raspberry preserve. The dense palate is nicely structured, fresh and crunchy on the black-currant-tinged finish. This is packed full of flavor. Drink dates 2020 – 2030
Here the nose is aromatically similar if a bit more elegant along with a whisper of herbal tea. Once again there is good energy and detail with slightly more concentrated flavors that possess noticeably better depth and persistence on the balance and somewhat more structured finale.
