Marsannay Clos du Roy
2013
2013

Located in the heart of a very old winegrowing village in the Côte de Nuits region of Burgundy that dates back over a thousand years, the Domaine Château de Marsannay  produces  this Marsannay “Clos du Roy” from a tiny 0.60-acre parcel of land, situated in the middle of a slope. The area is made up of scree soils and gravel, coming from the Comblanchien limestone typical of this climate.  “Clos,” meaning “closed,” refers to the walls surrounding the vineyard, and “Roy,” meaning “king,” refers to when the parcel of land was sold to the future King of France in 1348.
