Tasting Notes


ABV:
14 %

Notes

Open-knit and full of joy yet surprisingly finely poised too. Bright cherry characteristics with some griotte and strawberry sweetness too. A nice mix of richness, crunchy fruit and crushed rocks. Seamless and a huge amount of character for the money. Fermented with 20% whole bunches and reared in 25% new oak barrels.

Notes
The 2018 Maranges La Fussières 1er Cru Rouge is perfumed and floral on the nose, crushed rose petals infuse the brambly red berry fruit laced with iodine and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, quite saline in the mouth with a harmonious, almost understated finish. Just a slight attenuation but that is because it is soon after bottling.

Bachelet Monnot

Bachelet Monnot

In January 2005, after years of travelling France and the rest of the world gaining vital wine-making experience two budding young vignerons, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, set up this Domaine that spans 10 hectares over the Maranges, Santenay and Puligny-Montrachet communes. With a burning desire to work with nature to make the finest possible wines, Marc and Alexandre adopt a very natural, labour-intensive approach to wine-making. Soils are ploughed, vine health carefully monitored, herbicides are forbidden and strict de-budding is carried out to limit yields, whilst all grapes are hand picked at optimum ripeness. This Domaine is a rapidly rising star. 50% new oak is employed for Grand Crus whilst mush less is used for the rest of the range which, and along with using a mixture of larger-sized barrels alongside the traditional barriques, has been instrumental in eradicating oak impact on the flavour profile of the wines. The red Maranges is produced using a small proprortion of whole bunches. Form Bourgogne to Batard these are some of Burgundy's most brilliant wines from two of its most exciting young winemakers.
