Maranges 1st Cru

"Les Clos Roussots"



Communal denomination of the Côte de Beaune. The MARANGES appellation includes 7 Premiers Crus « climats » (denominated parcels). The red wines grown within the delimited area of ​​this appellation can also boast the CÔTE DE BEAUNE-VILLAGES appellation. Producer municipalities : Cheilly-lès-Maranges, Dezize-lès-Maranges, Sampigny-lès-Maranges. Although located in the department of Saône-et-Loire, this appellation is an integral part of the Côte de Beaune. The designations MARANGES and MARANGES PREMIER CRU may be followed by the name of their "climat" of origin.

The Maranges district, which mainly grows a red Pinot Noir plus some white Chardonnay, forms a link between the Côte-d'Or and the Saône-et-Loire. Its vineyards are intertwined with those of nearby Santenay, with which it shares some well thought out Crus. Maranges obtained its own municipal AOC in 1988 which covers the three villages of Cheilly-lès-Maranges, Dezize-lès-Maranges and Sampigny-lès-Maranges. The surrounding countryside has a character of its own - gentle and warm - which has been lovingly described by the Burgundian writer Henri Vincenot. Charming old-fashioned winegrowers' houses provide perfect subjects for a painter's brush.
Areas classified in red Maranges: 170.91 ha (incl. 79.13 ha 1ers Crus)
Areas in Maranges 1er Cru of Domaine in the commune of Cheilly-les-Maranges : 0 ha 42 to 92 approx.
Soils :
Although the hillsides are oriented differently to those of the Côte de Beaune, their nature and origins are geologically the same, forming a varied patchwork of hills and valleys. The vineyards are mainly exposed to the south/south-west and are located at an altitude of 240-400 metres. Cheilly, in the Cozanne valley, has rather light gravel soils. Sampigny and Dezize share climates (named parcels) located south of Santenay on brown limestone soils and calcareous marls.

Tasting notes:
This wine boasts a brilliant, raspberry-red colour, sometimes darker and tending towards purplish. Its fruity bouquet is
of black currants, and spiced or preserved red fruits. The mouth, fresh and tinged with licorice, creates a fleshy base for peppery flavours. These wines have just enough acidity to guarantee 3 or 4 years of rest (more in the best years). The tannins are soft, warm and melting, the vinosity is intense.
Warm and fluid, its tannic structure is particularly delicate and subtle. Its natural partners, therefore, are poultry and red meats that do not contrast with its tannins, especially in spicy exotic dishes to which its peppery vinosity acts as a lively counterpart.
The same goes for spring rolls, barbecued spare ribs and barbecued pork, which call for a wine bursting with fruit
and spices.
Serving temperature: 14 to 16 °C.
