The nose is intense and youthful, full of violets, ripe strawberries, red plums and sweet spices such as cinnamon. The palate is well-rounded and velvety, mixing freshness, salivation, and a long finish. Behind its ruby color with deep purple tints, Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2016 is a dense, concentrated and very well-balanced wine, definitely age-worthy. Its floral and fruity aromas make it a pleasant wine to enjoy today, but it is worth waiting a few years to taste it at its best.
Now to 25 years
The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey-Monge benefits from a unique environment protected by a two-meters-high stone wall. Positioned at the base of the hill of Pommard, the complexity of our vineyard’s soils come from the alluvial, sand and gravels carried along by the Avant-Dheune river thousand years ago. Our blend of the seven cuvées from the limestone and clay-rich terroirs of the clos creates a deep, elegant, and sophisticated Pinot Noir.
