AOC Marsannay: Closerie des Alisiers 'Vieilles Vignes' 2017

A juicy Pinot Noir produced from 45 year old vines by the energetic, local negoçiant Stéphane Brocard. The wine is aged for 15 months in oak (20% new) that rounds out the wine a little and means it is drinking very well now.

Producer

Stéphane Brocard

Stéphane Brocard is a branché Chablisien who found his family’s wine business becoming crowded when working alongside his brother and sister-in-law and sister and brother-in-law.

An intimate knowledge of Burgundy and a hankering to do his own thing led him to set up a boutique négociant business contracting in small parcels of carefully selected grapes, as well as investing in a precious plot of Pommard, for which he has high aspirations.
