he Marchand vineyard was started while Napoleon was still in power in 1813 . Head of the winery is Jean-Philippe Marchand proprietor and winemaker, and is the seventh generation of Marchands to guide the winery. This Burgundy is picked from vines that are minimum of 55 years old. It is classic in that the wine is dark in colour, with aromas of fresh red fruits when young, and candied fruit when matured, with occasional tones of gamey aromas. The flavour is firm, enhanced with a good acidity, powerful tannins, and excellent balance. The finish is long with a slight acidic touch.
