The Maranges appellation is the youngest of the Côte de Beaune family, making its debut in May 1989. It spans three villages, namely Dezize-lès-Maranges, Cheilly-les-Maranges and Sampigny-les-Maranges. Several hills and slopes make up this appellation, all south/south-east-facing, at an altitude of between 200 and 400 metres. The Maranges 1ers Crus are spread over seven distinct villages.
'La Fussière' is the main village of the Maranges appellation and is located in the Cheilly and Dezize-les-Maranges areas.
The wine offers a brilliant ruby color and a striking nose of red fruit aromas and blackcurrant. Fresh on the palate, with peppery notes.
When young, ideal with meat such as a rib of beef or filet mignon; when aged, it pairs wonderfully with dishes in spicy sauces.
"Blueberries, violets, slate, cocoa and tobacco on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with tightly knit tannins. Structured and focused. Drink from 2022, but already excellent."
