2015 Domaine Huguenot Marsannay "Champs Perdrix" (Previously $40)

SKU #1317974 Jancis Robinson

 Cask sample. Tight structure, fresh cherry fruit, a very light smoky touch to finish. Fine-grained tannin that leaves quite a grip on the finish. Needs several years to unfurl. Drink 2019-2029. (RH)  (1/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Marsannay Champs-Perdrix offers up notes of sweet red fruit, cherry, licorice and light reduction. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, juicy and succulent, with an ample frame of fine but chalky tannins which present with light grip on the moderately intense finish. Drink 2018-2025.

K&L Notes

Neal Martin writes: "The Huguenot family can trace their viticultural roots back through ten generations, to the year 1789 in the village of Marsannay. It is presently managed by Philippe Huguenot, who runs their 22 hectares of vine in Marsannay, Fixin and Gevrey (including one grand cru in the shape of Charmes-Chambertin), and under his tenure, the vines have been converted to organic viticulture that was completed in 2010. Here is another Marsannay producer whose wines are helping buff up the reputation of this overlooked appellation, especially with their superb Marsannay Montagne."

This is bright and forward with vivid raspberry fruit and spice gushing through the rich middle. The dark color and ripe flavors really showcase the warmth of the vintage.

I've a soft spot for good Marsannay, and so I certainly have an even greater weakness for great Marsannay. Domaine Huguenot Champs Perdrix is great Marsannay. Explosive on the nose, with loads of red and blue fruit aromas, and a floral, violet quality, the palate is juicy and vibrant, generous yet poised, ever so slightly showy but ultimately balanced. Delicious red Burgundy to drink now or cellar in the mid-term.

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
