Wines and signs: BIVB matches appellations to Chinese Zodiac

The Snake: Marsannay

Enigmatic, intelligent, wise and multi-talented, people born in the Year of the Snake share characteristics with the wines from Marsannay – the only Village appellation in Burgundy that can appear in three colours, white, red and rose.

Marsannay shares the sturdiness of neighbouring Fixin and the noble structure of Gevrey-Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits and produces wines that are powerful and generous.

Year of the Snake: 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013
