Marsannay, 'gateway to the Côte de Nuits' is the only AOC which produces red, white and rosé, but red dominates comprising 70% of the 240 hectares under vine. The appellation and has no Premier or Grand Cru site, but still produces some of the best wines from the area. A juicy, organic red wine produced by the energetic, local negoçiant Stéphane Brocard, he lives in Marsannay, that is drinking very well now.
