2015 Marsannay Rouge “Les Longeroies”

Régis Bouvier

2015 Marsannay <em>Rouge</em> “Les Longeroies” Régis Bouvier - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

The northernmost village in Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits is by no means its most esteemed. Marsannay, which has the distinction of being the only Burgundian appellation to produce wines in all three colors, does not share the prestige of Gevrey or Vosne to the south. But to assume that Marsannay cannot produce great wines would be a huge mistake: on the contrary, its terroir offers serious potential, and wines from top growers provide excellent value—a rarity today in Burgundy. Régis Bouvier owns land in some of Marsannay’s top parcels, including Les Longeroies, where his oldest vines are situated. This vineyard yields deep, powerful wines with chewy tannins and hints of wild berries, game, and smoke. A Marsannay like this, from a superb year like 2015, offers loads of pleasure in its youth, but will also age and improve for at least fifteen years.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
