Marsannay Champ Salomon

Champ Salomon is a climat with 50–year-old vines, where the soil is composed of Entroques limestone, which brings strength, and Ostrea Acuminata marls, which bring more breadth to the grapes of this small plot (0.50 hectare / ≈ 1.25 acres).
You will find this complementarity in the earthy character that marks Marsannay Champ Salomon. There is good body, with vivacity, strong tannins, and aromatic expressiveness, with red fruits and herbs. Its finish is persistent, with firm fresh minerality.
It is a terroir with great potential for ageing; time will produce a more melting texture. We suggest decanting the wine or opening the bottle in advance, for the first 5 years.
Depending on the vintage, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation, and ageing lasts about 12 months in barrels (with 20% of new barrels) and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
It will pair well with guinea fowl stew served with Lautrec garlic croutons, or with roast suckling pig and soy-flavoured juices, a fillet of beef with beet juices, or duck breast with blackcurrants.
