Based in the village of Ladoix Serrigny, just north of Beaune, Maratray Dubreuil is now in its third generation. They own 16 Ha of vines spread across the villages of Ladoix, Aloxe-Corton, Chorey-les-Beaune, Pernard-Vergelesses and Savigny Les Beaune. Perhaps these are slightly less fashionable areas of Burgundy, but they are producing stunning, old fashioned styles that will be tasting fine for years to come. The Chorey-les-Beaune is on clay and limestone soils, with vines averaging 55 years of age.
So far, the quality level in 2015 is looking extremely fine, and many are even calling it a great vintage for the reds, particularly in the Côtes de Beaune
100% Pinot Noir matured in 20% new French oak for 18 months. Very classical in style – meaty, glazed, yet still with that delicate cherry, soft spiced perfume. The texture is lively, and will settle and take on those quintessential sous bois, mushroom and cured meat aromas. This wine is far more about the elegance and perfume than the power, and this can only improve with time.
