2020 Maranges, La Fussière, 1er Cru, Rouge, Bachelet Monnot, Burgundy

£33.75 inc. VAT

Now here’s a Premier Cru Red Burgundy to fall head over heels in love with.

Maranges is a bit of a hidden gem of Burgundy. It is the most southernly village of the Côte d’Or and not although not one of its more famous names, in the right hands it can make delicious Burgundy at exceptional value. Bachelet-Monnot are definitely the right hands.

This Domaine was set up in 2005 by brothers Marc & Alexandre Bachelet and they own excellent organic vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet, Maranges and Santenay. It hasn’t taken long for the quality of their wine to be appreciated by the likes of critics such as Neal Martin and Jasper Morris MW amongst many others.

The Fussieres shows a real step in quality from their Bourgogne Rouge with plenty of the vibrant red fruit that made that so delicious but with much more concentration. There’s hints of mocha spice on the nose that already sits nicely with the red cherry and cranberry flavours, but there’s also a touch of dark fruit coming through too. The layers of fruit on the palate are astounding on a wine at this price and the structure is bold but refined – there’s a long life ahead of this wine for sure.

“What I really love is how they (the Bachelet brothers) elevate Maranges into something that exceeds all expectations.” Neal Martin, Vinous.com

“If you don’t know or don’t rate Maranges, this wine is a wake-up call.” Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
