Marsannay, Golden door of Côte de Nuits25 years: it has already been a long, long time since the birth of the AOC Marsannay, May 19th, 1987.
After a quarter of a century, the appelation Marsannay, made up of dynamic winemakers who are concerned about the quality of their wines, and are willing to progress vintage after vintage, now receives recognition.
The international recognition of the qualities of our wines is celebrated in the press and served on every table of renown.
Our desire to obtain recognition for our most prestigious « climats », through the request of classification as
Marsannay premier cru, which is currently filed with the competent institutions (INAO, National Institute of Origin and Quality), would strengthen the dynamics of the appellation.
We have an infinite gratitude towards all those who believed in the name Marsannay, and who fought in order to bring it into the spotlight. For the current generation of winegrowers, this is obvious. Our seniors have thus highlighted the richness, diversity, and the specificities of the « climats » of the appelation Marsannay.
The recognition of the compelling need to protect our working tools, historic heritage, and landscape is provided by the request for the « climats » of Burgundy to be listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.
