Maranges 1er Cru « La Fussière »

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Area: 0.8 ha Average age of vine: 40 years

The Premier Cru « La Fussière » comes from two parcels, one of grey marls, the other silt-limestone, in their fourth year of organic agriculture. Aged 16 months in Burgundy oak barrels, it is neither fined nor filtered before bottling. The bouquet sets off an explosion of liquorice, aniseed, tobacco, concentrated raspberries and white pepper. The palate is imposingly straight-lined, very concentrated on dense and tannic fruit substance, punctuated by a hot and mineral finish.
