Bachelet-Monnot Maranges 1er Cru La Fussiere 2019 (France: Burgundy) (ID# 3953)

Name Bachelet-Monnot Maranges 1er Cru La Fussiere 2019 (ID# 3953)
Varietal Pinot Noir
Region France: Burgundy
Notes "The Bachelet brothers have 6.5 hectares in total on the south-facing slopes of premier cru La Fussière. There is about a hectare of recently replanted vines, and the rest is 50 years of age or older, planted on thin soils over limestone. These deliver a wine that has plenty of black fruit and notes of liquorice on the nose. But notable, above all, are its firm tannic grip and concentration. Perhaps the finest terroir in Maranges." (Decanter)

Additional Notes

"The 2019 Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière opens in the glass with notes of peonies, cherries, wild berries and spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and precise, with lively acids, fine tannins and a perfumed, mouthwateringly saline finish, it's a real success. This cuvée has grown, as the Bachelet brothers have acquired more parcels in this stony climat." (Wine Advocate) "An attractively floral nose is comprised by notes of plum, dark raspberry along with hints of spice and earth. There is both more volume and more refinement to the punchy medium-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, refreshing, and sneaky long finish that displays only a touch of rusticity." (Burghound)
