2018 Audoin Marsannay Au Champs Salomon rouge



Holy moly…..WOW. This presents deeeeep red fruited essence aromatically, leading to a crazy sappy red fruited intensity in the mouth with accompanying serious shtuffing/dry extract. The sense of concentration and energy here is plain jaw dropping. Get this. A little * awarded here.

“Scents of cherries, raspberries, orange rind and dried flowers introduce the 2018 Marsannay Au Champ Salomon, a medium to full-bodied, lively wine that’s deep and concentrated but more introverted than the other lieux-dits bottlings that preceded it. The raw materials, however, are decidedly promising.” 90-92 William Kelley

“A top note of menthol is present on the herbal tea, red cherry, raspberry and soft earth wisps. There is first-rate intensity to the beautifully well-detailed and mineral-driven flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the firm, serious and equally built-to-age finale. Good stuff. (90-93)/2030+” Allan Meadows ————> thingy, meaning, “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”.
