IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

At the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune and encroaching on the department of Saône-et-Loire, the Maranges AOC embraces the communes of Cheilly-les-Maranges, Dezize-les-Maranges and Sampigny-les-Maranges.

History

This little-known and recently-created appellation (1989) includes 7 1er cru climats. It offers a range of likeable wines at attractive prices.

Terroir
The "Fussière" climat covers an area of almost 35 ha, which makes it the most extensive of the appellation. It has a southerly exposure and lies mainly on a hill-slope where the altitude ranges from 290 to 350 metres and there are numerous springs. The soil is whitish, stony and overlies blue marl.

Tasting
Production is mainly of red wines, deeply coloured - almost black - and with a surprising fruit which blends aromas of black fruits and stone-fruits. These wines, usually very chewy, have good keeping properties. While I am in favour of a rather gentle vinification in order not to extract too much tannin, I suggest that these wines should be drunk in their first eight years.
