Domaine de la Cras - Marc Soyard

Domaine de la Cras rehabilitates a great lost terroir

In just a few years, Marc Soyard has gone from being a discreet young winemaker from the north of the Côte de Nuits to a sure thing that all well-informed wine lovers are snapping up. It has to be said that Marc is an excellent winemaker capable of transcending terroirs with rare talent.

Trained by Jean-Yves Bizot in Vosne-Romanée, where he learned rigor, the art of reading terroirs and the art of lacy winemaking, it was in 2014 that Marc Soyard set out on his own, taking over Domaine de la Cras. It was in Plombières-lès-Dijon, west of Burgundy's capital, that the young winemaker began working his soils and moved his 8 hectares, already organic, towards biodynamics. He is the sole representative of a terroir, once prestigious but now little-known, the Coteaux de Dijon.

Marc respects the terroir, his grapes and produces his wines in the most natural way: manual work in the vineyard and cellar, indigenous yeasts, sulfur-free vinification, no filtration, no fining, no junk, just grape juice, well accompanied, well matured and always presenting itself in its best light.

We present the new 2022 vintage with the two Bourgogne cuvées (white, red), the two Equilibriste cuvées (white, red, too) and a little delicacy that Marc doesn't produce every year: Déprimeur, a very pretty primeur (Thursday, November 16) from a short cuvaison (but having completed its malo) that will allow us all to brighten up this month of November, which is damp to say the least.

Given the growing demand for the estate's wines and the small volumes available, we are obliged to limit quantities (max. 8 estate bottles per customer). We would like to remind you that any multiple orders will be cancelled automatically so that as many people as possible can enjoy these rare wines.
