About the Producer:

Cyril Audoin made his first wine when he was 15, and twelve years later he seems to have the touch of a vigneron as old as the hills of Burgundy. As the 5th generation in his family to do so, Cyril has now taken the reins of the estate. His ascension seems to closely parallel the also youthful history of Marsannay as a village. In fact, it is the passion for terroir and wines of balance and depth created by men like Cyril that has put Marsannay at the forefront for exciting new wines coming out of Burgundy. As the established names of  Burgundy rush to the Porte d'Or (the 'Golden Gate' as Marsannay is known) to throw their hats in the gold rush, they will find Cyril holding the keys that unlock the terroir of this exciting village.

"Cyril Audoin – who joined his mother and father (the domaine’s namesake) in 2000 – is impassioned about demonstrating what he believes is the largely unrecognized potential of Marsannay, and now that I have caught up with his wines, I can confidently state that I know of no one other than Philippe Roty who is more deliciously or profoundly succeeding in that demonstration, which means that given the modest prices asked for them, these wines represent some of Burgundy’s better values. Furthermore, this estate’s nearly 40 acres of largely old vines (or vines grafted over to selections massales) from a smorgasbord of distinctive sites makes possible striking demonstrations of terroir in action (though that very abundance also meant I was not able to taste quite the entire range in the time available to me.) “I’m lucky,” says the younger Audoin, “that my parents set a model for making very classic wines,” which for him means inter alia no fining or filtration, a single racking, and an elevage of 18 months, the last 6 normally in tank, from which I tasted the 2008s early this year. (The Audoin whites, too – on which I’ll report later – are impressive." - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate (6/2010)

Ratings & Reviews

90-91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2008 vintage):
"From a dimple-like site above the Chateau de Marsannay that derives its name from the proximity of mother chalk to its surface; the Audoin 2008 Marsannay Les Favieres is scented and flavored with fresh red raspberry, allied to mouth-watering salinity and rather mysterious maritime and crustacean suggestions similar to – if less obvious or sweet than – those of Clos de Roy (which is located well to the north, just below Chenove). Refine tannins and remarkable buoyancy carry through a long, lip-smacking and thought-provokingly subtle finish. “If there were one grand cru in Marsannay,” opines Cyril Audoin, “then I think that would be here,” and after tasting two vintages – the other an elegantly refined 2006 (“it’s always like this,” Audoin seeks to assure me) – I must say, I’m well on the way to becoming convinced! While there’s no need to wait to enjoy this, I suspect it will prove deliciously fascinating for at least most of a decade." - David Schildknecht (6/2010)

89-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound
(2008 vintage):
"The most elegant wine in the range in 2008 with a very stylish and layered nose of ultra fresh red currant and cherry infused aromas that serve as a refined introduction to the racy, serious and mouth coating flavors that evidence an attractive touch of minerality on the balanced and lingering finish. Also recommended." (1/30/2010)

Allen Meadows' Burghound (2007 vintage):
"Here the nose is also on the more elegant than rustic side with red berry fruit aromas that are less obviously cut with earth and underbrush nuances. I like the touch of minerality on the finer if slightly less concentrated flavors that culminate in a finish of better than average length for what one expects from the typical Marsannay." (1/1/2009)

Wine Spectator (2005 vintage):
"This frank, earthy red is concentrated and robust, with black cherry and plum notes. It's fresh and backed by burly tannins. A wine for pot-au-feu or coq au vin. Best from 2010 through 2018. 430 cases made." –BS (5/15/2008)

I love Burgundy March 3, 2012
Reviewer: Greg from San Ramon  
Wow! This is Burgundy, and for the price a steal. Cranberry red in color. This wine is the definition of complex. I was shocked because of the price. Marsannay is a sleeper appellation in Burgundy where deals are a plenty. The first smell out of the glass was flowers along with raspberry, sweet cheery, and a touch of vanilla. After a little breathing the wine continued to show more layers. Mushrooms, juniper berry carry in the glass. The wine is perfectly balanced, with the mentioned fruits coming through. The finish is long and full of tart cherry. Pair with boeuf bourguignon!
