Now three years settled in at his state-of-the-art cuverie (winery), Cyril is getting even more precision in his vinifications, as this oh-so-primary tank sample clearly showed. This stuff was deeelicious in its purity of little red fruits and rising perfume, both aromatically and in the mouth, with a sense of precise chiseled cut and mineral length on the backend. Marsannay is the single most famous village in Burgundy for its rosé wine, and this is one that I have been waiting some time for…..Last year’s 2016 rosé was an absolute knockout that had many many folks coming back for more. From what I tasted, this ’17 should be right in line. Get a 6pk or a case, and thank me later.
