The Vieux Collège estate is a family run vineyard for 7th generations. In the year 2006, Eric Guyard took over the reins of the business, upholding the traditions of his ancestors and bringing forth the quality and expression of terroir. The surfaces extends over 25 hectares through the village of Marsannay, Fixin and Gevrey Chambertin.
Eric keeps a watchful eye on the grapes to determine when they have reached their optimal maturity. The plots are then all harvested manualy. Perfect ripeness of the grapes is a guarantee of the quality of all the great Burgundy wine they produce each vintage. Prefering to work the soil mechanically and excluding any chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides or synthetic chemical products in order to preserve the biodiversity of the vineyards and surrounding land. The domain is certified organicly farming by ECOCERT since the year 2014. A high level of respect is given to the estate and to the wine as it is vinified and aged.
The 2020 Les Vignes Marie presents a shiny pale yellow color. Its nose reveals notes of vanilla, honeysuckle and toasted hazelnut. Its mouth, ample and round, reminds of vanilla then light aromas of marzipan. Beautiful freshness in the final.
