Domaine Marsanne, Mauves
Jean-Claude Marsanne lives and works in Mauves in the southern part of the Saint-Joseph appellation. We have been shipping his brilliant, age-worthy Saint-Joseph since the 2010 vintage, it having become a firm HH&C favourite. His vineyards are on slopes that are, in effect, a continuation of the hill of Hermitage, on the opposite bank of the Rhône. With most of the wine maturing in old oak demi-muids, the remainder in tank, Jean-Claude’s focus is on allowing the terroir and vintage character to shine.
