Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Bachelet Monnot, Maranges, La Fussière, 1er Cru, Rouge, 2022

A more serious offering than the villages Maranges, with a complex tightly wound fruit set, a fine spine of tannin and this lovely salty dark fruited finish. An excellent cuvee that hails from seven7 different parcels in La Fussiere, vinified separately and in a variety of vessels, with the percentage of whole bunch tailored to each plot. Vines are aged between 10 and 85 years old, energy coming from the former, complexity from the latter. Fermented with an average of 25-35% whole bunches in 2022.

ABV:
13.5%
90-92/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2022 Maranges Rouge La Fussières 1er Cru is a blend of several cuvées with different proportions of whole bunches, averaging around 30%. It has more nuance on the nose than the Vieilles Vignes; the stems are neatly incorporated. The palate is medium-bodied with a sapid entry that gets the saliva flowing. With chalky tannins, quite firm structure and a hint of licorice on the finish, this Maranges deserves 3 or 4 years in bottle.

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.
