The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey-Monge benefits from a unique environment, protected by a two-meter stone wall. Positioned at the base of the Pommard hill, the complexity of our vineyard’s soils come from the alluvial, sand and gravel carried along by the Avant-Dheune river thousand years ago.
Hand-harvested grapes, hand-sorted on a vibrating table. 100% de-stemmed, placed into stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity flow. Weeks-long maceration, minimal pumping-over, and punching-down. Pressing in pneumatic press. Placed in French oak barrels for aging on fine lees. Light filtration.
Tasting Notes: Our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2015 is everything a Burgundy Pinot Noir from a great vintage should be: power and elegance in perfect harmony. From the brilliant ruby color to the plush, concentrated fruit to the dense, chewy tannins - this wine has it all. Decanting this youthful Pommard is highly recommended to fully enjoy an aromatic symphony of black currant, blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry supported by warm spices, roasted coffee, and herbal, earthy notes of mint, tobacco, and forest floor. The mouth-watering acidity and luxuriant finish leave no doubt that our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2015 is truly a grand Pinot to enjoy now or easily cellar for a decade - if you’re patient enough to wait.
"Beautiful on the nose with so much perfume and brightness with ripe strawberries, cedar and dried flowers that follow through to a full body, layers of ripe tannins and a long, flavorful finish. So delicious now, but a long life ahead of it. Drink or hold." - 95 points, James Suckling
