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.

Clos de Jeu is located at the Couchey end of the Marsannay sector on the mid slope around the 300m contour. Wines from here can produce a relatively muscular and powerful Marsannay with good tannic structure.

Other Reviews....
Lots of licorice and anise, with dried cherries, salted plums and charred bark. Some iodine. Medium-bodied, deep and intense, with a darker fruit and spice profile that summons you in, framed by sleek and firm tannins. Tightly-packed power at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Try this from 2025.
