Domaine des Rouges Queues, 2018 Maranges, 1er Cru, La Fussière
La Fussière is one of the two large premier cru vineyards that dominate the mid-slopes in the eastern part of the village appellation. Full southern exposure ensures full ripening and the soils are composed of gray and blue marl on top of the classic limestone & clay of the Côte d’Or. This vineyard is plowed entirely by horse to minimize the impact on the soil structure, flora and fauna.
This wine shows a very elegant structure of ripe tannins and good acidity. The aromatics lean towards red fruit and sweet spices with nice earth and juicy mid-palate. Expect this wine to age for at least 10 years, but it generally shows quite well in its youth.
