WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
juicy, silky, elegant … the hallmarks of attractive young Burgundy, with persistence of flavour and a price that represents good value in this pricy region
ABOUT THE WINERY
Maranges 1er Cru Fussières comes from a 2.5 acre plot from the premier cru vineyard of La Fussière from very old vines, the oldest planted in 1930. Grapes are hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks and the wine is aged in oak barrels (40% new) for one year before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Aromas of cherries, cocoa and cinnamon precede a mouthful of ripe fruit followed by a long and wiry finish. It’s a dark and structured red Burgundy and a lot of wine for the price.
