Wine Enthusiast 93 points. Gentle woodsmoke and red cherry combine on the nose of this wine and continue on the bright body where ne, taut tannins carry the ripeness of the vintage with ease. Freshness emanates from a lively core, giving energy to this wine that shows real elegance - A.K. Published 12/1/2020. This plot of 67 acres is located at the top of the hill and looks to the southeast. It enjoys a limestone soil mixed with silt, sand and clay. This climat extends on both Beaune and Savigny communes. This name comes from Marcomans (lat marcomani or men of the border), a West Germanic tribe existing until the fourth century; this type of Germanic declination is frequently found after the invasion of the Franks for names of rivers around Beaune. It appears in literature in the form Marconain in 1270 and Marconnay in 1294; a stream thus took its source in this locality. Comparable to certain grands crus, the wines have distinction, power and aromatic complexity. "Subtle hints of menthol and wood toast can be found on the spicy liqueur-like aromas of plum, cherry and cassis. There is once again fine verve and delineation to the stony medium weight flavors that deliver very good length if less complexity on the very firmly structured finale. This may well surprise to the upside if it can add more depth with time in bottle, which it definitely needs." BH
