Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Maranges 1Er Cru la Fussière, which includes 20% whole bunch fruit (as has been the case for the last three vintages), offers plenty of mulberry and damson fruit on the nose. I appreciate the vigor here, a wine that has no intention of shortchanging you on fruit while maintaining admirable definition. The palate is well balanced with a sense of succulence on the entry counterbalanced by a keen thread of acidity. The whole bunch works really well here, lending the blackcurrant-tinged finish complexity and brightness. This is a Maranges from the very top drawer.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot in Dézize (Cote de Beaune) was recently created by Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, grandchildren of Bernard Bachelet. They own 10ha of vine in all, covering Maranges, with 1er cru wine La Fussière in both colours and the semi-monopoly of Clos de la Boutière, Santenay and Puligny-Montrachet, including 1ers crus Referts and Folatières along with grands crus Bienvenues-Bâtard and Bâtard-Montrachet. The whites wines are exceptionally fine.
