  • Aromas of ripe, dark bramble fruit and culinary herbs lead to a smooth, velvety palate with vivid, dark fruit enveloping alluring tannins. An energetic yet classy Gevrey: intense, with a smooth graphite note giving a long, savory finish.

The fruit comes from the highly reputed Domaine Rossignol-Trapet from the village status lieu-dit of Combes du Dessus. An exceptionally well-sited plot, on a gentle east-facing slope just below the Premier Cru on the hill. David and Nicolas Rossignol were among the first in Burgundy to work with biodynamic viticulture in the 1990s and by 2004 the whole domain was converted. Following biodynamic viticulture improved the quality of the soil, resulting in heightened levels of energy and vibrancy in the wine. The soils are limestone, which combined with Pinot Noir usually results in a certain austerity, but in warmer vintages it emerges as a vibrant and crunchy style. The duo has trialled netting sections of the vineyard against hail, which when measured against a control, has resulted in the INAO acceptance of this practice, to the potential benefit of all.

Having tasted thousands of wines over the past fifteen vintages in Burgundy, and having been captivated by the individual characters of the vineyards, each with its unique terroir, Sarah Marsh MW decided to embark on her own terroir-driven project.
Following a concept of vinifying grapes from a lieu-dit or specific part of a vineyard which, for some reason, be it the soil or the vine age, could stand alone, Sarah works closely with domaines she knows well, where the vineyard has been meticulous cared
for with healthy ‘living’ soils. Buying from domaines who do not usually sell their precious fruit is an unusual approach, but those winemakers have made an exception to support Sarah’s terroir project and the stunning results speak for themselves.
