The 2014 Marchand Bolnot Marsannay is a stirring example of Pinot Noir from the northern limits of Burgundy. Often overlooked for the more famous (and more expensive) neighboring village of Gevrey-Chambertin, Marsannay is capable of producing a savory, mineral-laden expression of Pinot Noir all its own. Winemaker Pierre Vincent has unlocked the essence of this special terroir in this wonderful vintage and we are most pleased to share it with you.
Pale ruby in color, the nose releases a perfume of potpourri, pomegranate, and spice. The silky palate is alive with flavors of cranberry and crushed cherry skins, all leading to a vibrant mineral-laced finish with hints of savory herbs and spice. This drinks beautifully today and offers another 8-10 years of evolution. Best served with either grilled salmon or a slow roasted pork tenderloin wrapped complemented by sautéed shitake mushrooms.
