2019 Marsannay Rouge “Les Longeroies” Vieilles Vignes

Régis Bouvier

Marsannay is one of those Burgundian villages that languished in relative obscurity until recently, when Burgundy lovers began to reconsider the potential of the Côte d'Or's lesser-known appellations. Today, some of Burgundy's most renowned domaines have begun to bottle their own Marsannay, underscoring a newfound and widespread respect for this AOC situated south of Dijon. 
     Régis Bouvier, by contrast, has been a true believer of this village's wines for decades and is accordingly an expert when it comes to crafting top-notch whites, reds, and—unique in Burgundy—rosés from Marsannay's terroirs. This old-vine rouge comes from what will one day be deemed a premier cru parcel, Les Longeroies—one of the two most respected vineyards here. It sits just below the other, Clos du Roy, and produces Régis's most elegant and bright Pinot, reminiscent of black cherries, black tea, and baking spices. Longeroies is among the most versatile red Burgundies we import and will pair with all kinds of fare, from wild mushroom polenta to roast chicken or quail, and it can also be aged for upwards of ten years.

About Burgundy

map of 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.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
