Cartron Marc de Bourgogne Hors d'Âge 8yr
Joseph Cartron has been a family run business since 1882, with strong roots in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges at the heart of Burgundy’s cru vineyards. The soil of this region has been producing high quality fruit for centuries, which for many years have been used in the production of Burgundy wines. Cartron specialises in the production of liqueurs, crèmes, ratafia, marc, eaux de vie, with a team of craftsmen using age old recipes.
The extraordinary quality of Joseph Cartron’s Very Old Marc de Bourgogne is due, amongst others, to the exclusive choice of red wine pomace from Appellations Contrôlées areas selected from the most famous: Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Aloxe-Corton, Volnay or even Pommard, just to mention a few.
A unique selection of red wine pomace of the Pinot Noir variety together with very meticulous distillation, regular ageing and careful blending, gives their Marc de Bourgogne all its freshness, its fruitiness and its intensity.
Tasting Notes: Notes of squashed pomace, wet hay. The fruit is still present with hints of grape skins. On the palate it is generous and warm yet full of finesse and fruity flavour. The texture in the mouth is fresh despite the maturing in oak vats.
