Marsannay Blanc ‘Les Champs Perdrix” Domaine Marc Roy 2015
Domaine Marc Roy, Gevrey Chambertin
Standing in the heart of Gevrey Chambertin, this estate has passed from father to son for generations, yet the winemaking is now carried out by Marc's only daughter Alexandrine. She’s had a huge impact on the domaine, having previously spent time in other classic Pinot growing regions, such as Oregon, and Central Otago N.Z. Although Alexandrine has no Grand or 1er Crus, her village wines are of a particularly high quality, coming from very old vines (70 year old for the Vieilles Vignes)
The 2012 Marsannay Les Champs Perdrix Blanc has a pleasant nose with grapefruit, candle wax and a touch of creme caramel. It is generous and giving.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
