Les Marconnets is a 14-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. The vineyard is located at the northern end of the appellation near the top of a slope. Clive Coates has called the wines of Les Marconnets “fullish, plump and rich.” Les Marconnets is one of 44 Premier Crus in Beaune, which has no Grand Crus.
This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
