Known to bring body and structure to our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole blend, our Grands Champs is a high-quality Pinot Noir enjoyable on its own. With an intense ruby color and exuberant nose of red fruits, sandalwood and sweet spices such as cinnamon and cloves, it is a full-bodied and tannic red wine. Its long finale displays notes of minerality, bringing an elegant touch to this robust cuvée.
Now to 25 years
Grands Champs’ 4.81 hectares of large, round, rocky, calcium- rich soils planted between 1980 and 1990 produce a straight Pinot Noir with firm tannins and the potential for long aging. Occupying almost one-quarter of our vineyard’s overall area, the 220 rows of the Grands Champs plot is the most calcareous area of the Clos Marey-Monge.

“The nose is very discrete: opening on smoky, leathery and red cherry aromas, typical to Pinot Noir. On the palate, the texture is dense and powerful with a rich mid palate, complemented with powdery fine-grained tannins and a long ardent finish.”
The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey‑Monge is a collection of different micro-climates and soil types. Each of our seven terroirs – Simone, Les Paules, Grands Champs, Chantrerie, 75 Rangs, Micault, and Émilie – is a different composition of limestone, iron-rich clay, alluvium and other minerals essential to Pinot Noir.
