Description

Marsannay is the village which marks the northern gateway to the Cote d'Or on leaving Dijon, the capital of Burgundy and home to the Ducs de Bourgogne. This village marks the beginning of the Route des Grands Crus which follows the N6 highway through the Cote d'Or. Wines from Marsannay are generally lively and robust; characteristics that come from the rich iron soil. Marsannay received its Appellation Controlée as recently as 1987 in recognition of the consistently high quality of its wine.
