Domaine Charles Audoin Au Champ Salomon Rouge 2020 from 8wines

SKU: 5133 Category:


Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving. The Audoin family’s domaine is regarded as “Marsannay reference point” by Wine Advocate thanks to the vision of Charles Audoin who started bottling and selling wines under his name in the 1970s. Charles grew the family’s modest 2.5 hectare property to 14 hectares which are all farmed organically and include many of Marsannay’s top crus. Today the property is run by his son, Cyril, who is the fifth generation of the family to grow grapes here. Champ Salomon has special significance for the family since it was planted in 1945 by Cyril’s grandfather and tends to produce rich expressions of Pinot Noir. The wines are all bottled without filtering and fining to allow the natural character of the terroir and variety to shine through. Ripe raspberries, cherries and plums dominate on the nose with undertones of bramble, spice, and baked earth. The first sip reveals a bright burst of red fruit flavours which linger long on the tongue along with fine tannins, a well-built structure and a bright streak of acidity on the finish. The balanced and refined flavour profile make it a great choice to serve with charcuterie or mature hard cheeses as well as rich meat stews, roast duck, or game like venison.
