Domaine Charles Audoin was formed in 1972 by Charles and his oenologist wife Marie-Francoise, starting with three hectares in Marsannay. Their holding has now grown to around 14 hectares that captures some of the best parcels in Marsannay. Their son Cyril joined his father in 2000, and is now in charge of both vineyard and winemaking activities for the Domaine. Cyril is increasingly focused on vineyard health, to deliver wines with pure varietal expression and a sense of place. They are among the most serious wines from the area, and while juicy and approachable young, have the capacity to age gracefully for many years.

Situated in the southern part of Marsannay, Au Champ Salomon is one of the premier vineyards in this Couchey sector. The vineyard is well placed on the mid-slope, and produces wines that combine power and elegance, and a propensity to age extremely well.

Other Reviews....
This is packed to the gills with super-fresh blackberries, but has a dangerously firm core of fine tannins that’s wrapped in a cloak of velvet richness. Huge scale, but miraculously retains a light touch, the power only really becoming apparent at the extremely long, precise finish. Enormous aging potential! Drink or hold.

A beautifully spicy nose reflects top notes of a variety of floral influences on the red currant, dark cherry and soft earth wisps. The succulent, delicious and impressively concentrated flavors also exude evident minerality on the firm, serious, mouth coating and youthfully austere finale that delivers even better length. This too is excellent and one to look for. Drink to 2032+.
