Marsannay is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France which is unusual because the production of reds, whites and rose wines are permitted. The production of rose is not common in Burgundy. The communes where production is permitted are Chenove, Couchey and Marsannay-la-Cote. The appellation was established in 1987.
White wines can be made from either Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc and a little Pinot Gris can be blended into either. Red wines are made from Pinot Noir with the possibility of blending small quantities of the white grapes as well. Rose can be made from Pinot Noir or Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
