Charlopin-Tissier

Founded in 2013 by Yann Charlopin - the son of the renowned Philippe Charlopin, and Yann's wife Justine Tissier. After studying wine in Beaune and spending time making wine in Tasmania, Sancerre and Chablis, Yann Charlopin returned home to work alongside his father and receive mentoring from Jean-Marie Fourrier, both of whom advised Yann to establish his own domain. The young couple Yann and Justine did so, based on the purchase of the former estate of David Clarke and some inherited Marsannay vines on Justine's side.

The young couple's holdings now represent just over 4ha of vines, all hand-harvested with the grapes fully destemmed before fermentations with indigenous yeasts and long slow élevage on lees. "Les Longeroies" is in Marsannay proper, a parcel next to the famed "Clos du Roy" but is more structured as "Longeroies" is planted on traditional clay-limestone soils as opposed to the other's sandiness. One for near-term cellaring.
