Joseph Cartron has been a family run business since 1882, with strong roots in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges at the heart of Burgundy’s cru vineyards. The soil of this region has been producing high quality fruit for centuries, which for many years have been used in the production of Burgundy wines. Cartron specialises in the production of liqueurs, crèmes, ratafia, marc, eaux de vie, with a team of craftsmen using age old recipes.
Only exceptional eaux-de-vie are worth ageing over 15 years. The extraordinary quality of Joseph Cartron’s Very Old Marc de Bourgogne is positively due to the exclusive red wine pomace from Appellations Contrôlées areas selected from the most famous: Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Aloxe-Corton, Volnay or even Pommard, just to mention a few.
A unique selection of red wine pomace of the Pinot Noir variety together with very meticulous distillation, regular ageing and careful blending gives their Marc de Bourgogne its rare aromatic complexity, its fine woody notes and its perfect roundness.
Tasting Notes: Notes of grape must and pips with peppery mint and vanilla. In the mouth, the texture is balanced with a good length.
