Marsannay is the most recent appellation contrôlée of Burgundy (1987). It is the only village which produces all colors: red, white and rosé. This vineyard is east-south oriented in the village of Chenôve. The soils are dark brown, dry and contain marls and clay with stones and gravels helping for a good drainage. The Clos du Roy vineyard may be the first parcel to get the premier cru appellation in the near future.
