Description
  • Situated to the south-west of Santenay, the Maranges appellation is at the southernmost tip of the Côte de Beaune. The Pinot Noir vineyards are planted on well-exposed south-east facing slopes, and the wines thrive on the heavy clay soil. The wines tend to be firm and tannic when young. Maranges has an excellent capacity for ageing with fine structure and intensity of Pinot Noir fruit character.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Deep ruby in color, Maranges 2007 expresses straightforward and intense aromas. On the nose, there are notes of cherries and underbrush. This wine has great balance with flavors of black fruits and licorice on the finish. Pleasant to taste now, this wine could also benefit from a few years of ageing.
  • Food Pairing
    Guinea fowl with cabbage - hare stew - cheese


Press review
    • Maranges 2012 - Tom Cannavan's wine-pages.com - August 2015 - 87/100

      Much lighter and more delicate and open than the 2013 Bourgogne at this stage, a hint of briar and leafy bracken, and pretty cherry fruit. Light and savoury on the palate, there is a nicely roughening bit of tannin structure, and good grippy rusticity, giving this savoury and authentic appeal. (UK)
