Domaine Charles Audoin 'Clos du Roy', Marsannay, France 2017
Cyril Audoin is the fifth generation to join the family winery. His father, Charles, was a visionary, selecting and visiting the best parcels in Marsannay (at the northern tip of Côte de Nuits) before the region even gained the appellation status in the 1970's. The 2017 is showing structured yet refined fruits with still a long life ahead. Great wine from a vintage preferred by those who love the classics.
Grape: Pinot Noir
Pairing: Meatier Fish prepared with mushrooms and artichokes
