2021 Cyril Audoin Marsannay blanc Cuvee Charlie


Whereas in the frost affected 2016 vintage, Cyril blended what tiny quantities of his lieu dit Marsannays into a single impressive super cuvée honoring daughter Charlie’s arrival, he has chosen to rename his “regular” Marsannay villages blanc after Charlie for now and forever forward, mirroring the Marsannay villages rouge named after his ancestor Marie Ragonneau. This ’18 proved to be an absolute charmer in its blend of moderately dense ripe citrus fruit and vibrant florals, finishing with an excellent sense of freshness and poise. What more could one ask for in an everyday but serious villages wine?

“The 2019 Marsannay Cuvée Charlie Blanc is lovely, offering up aromas of crisp orchard and stone fruit complemented by hints of nutmeg and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, textural and fleshy, it’s rich but chiseled, with tangy acids and a mouthwatering finish.” 90-92 William Kelley

As the frost obliterated the vast majority of his Chardonnay wines, Cyril did not make any single parcel crus en blanc in 2021, all of the fruit informing his Marsannay villages bottling.
“rom Les Etalles, Les Crais, Les Recilles and Le Poiset). Agreeably cool and pretty aromas combine notes of pear and apple with those of citrus confit and anise. There is excellent density to the very punchy and nicely delineated flavors that also culminate in a very dry, clean and focused finale. This isn’t exactly rustic though neither is it particularly refined. (89-91)/2024+” Allen Meadows for the 2020, NOT THE 2021 OFFERED HERE.
