A burst of bright cherries, raspberries, and blood orange emerge from this stunning Pinot Noir. Medium-bodied with a mineral tension to balance the fur-fruited aroma and flavors that announces its status as a top-level red Burgundy. Finishes with a lacy texture and silky profile.
The 2020 Maranges Vieilles Vignes is a blend of two climats and contains 40% whole bunches. It has a delightful bouquet of blackberry, cranberry and pressed iris flowers, pure and seductive, the stems so perfectly assimilated so that you barely perceive them. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and citrusy, with grippy tannins, fine acidity and veins of blood orange mixed with spice toward the finish, which feels very persistent. Superb.
