Cyril Audoin (Marsannay)

We were pleased to have been the first in the UK to have heard about Cyril Audoin. On one of our visits to Burgundy he treated us to lunch in a tiny vineyard workers’ bistro and was horrified when one of his own very old bottles was corked. Luckily for us, he ran back to fetch a replacement. Not much white wine is made on the Cote de Nuits and his white Marsannay impressed us so much that it has become a firm Winery favourite. Cyril, now in his late 20s, started making wine when he was 12. Swashbuckling Cyril is something of a local Casanova – every time we visit, he seems to have a different (always drop-dead gorgeous) girlfriend. He told us that he has recently bought a love shack in the quiet village of Chambolle-Musigny. Lock up your daughters!
