About This Wine
La Fussière is the largest climat of Maranges (at the very south of the Côte de Beaune), covering an area of almost 35 hectares. It has a south-facing exposure - directly facing the start of the Côte Chalonnaise - and lies on the slope at an altitude of between 290 and 400 metres. The Bachelet's vines cover 2.2 hectares with an age of 60 years old on average. This wine spent roughly 12 months in barrel with some 25% new casks. It was then racked to cement vats where it rested for roughly six more months. The soils of this site are rich in limestone and this gives the wine a lot of freshness and powdery grip. There is luminous, very pretty, red currant and wild strawberry fruit, and fine, round tannins. Marc Bachelet's aim has always been to craft finer, more aromatic reds from the Côte's southern reaches and the introduction of whole bunch vinification (20% in this cuvée) helps in this aim. This is really lovely and a great value Premier Cru red Burgundy.
