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.

Les Favieres is situated on the border of the Marsannay and Couchey sectors, and the vineyard has a very shallow top soil above the bedrock. It tends to produce wines that are very precise, structured, and built to age.

Other Reviews....
Beautifully peppery and perfumed nose of violets, peppercorns, cardamom, wild cherries, mulberries and cloves. Tea leaves and paprika. Fantastic flavors packed tightly into a medium body. Chalky, mineral tannins. Long and linear. Then comes to a tight and firm finish. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2025.
