In a nutshell:
A rounded, fruity and full Marc de Bourgogne from Maison Briottet of Dijon
Marc is a type of brandy which, instead of coming from wine, is distilled from what's left over after fermentation - the grape stalks and skins. As a result it has a more powerful and less polished flavour than grape brandy. Unaged examples can be rough, but older ones, such as this, have acquired a good degree of smoothness. It's not something that's seen a lot in the UK, but has quite a following in its home country. Many regions have their own version and this one coming from Burgundy is made from the fruit of the vineyards in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. It's aged for a minimum of five years in oak barrels and the result is a brandy with a real roundness and full fruity flavour of the Burgundian terroir.
