Country: France, Bourgogne, Cote De Beaune
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
The Maranges Premier Cru Les Fussière comes from 35-50-year-old Pinot Noir vines grown on limestone soils with small amounts of clay. The wine does an excellent job of balancing power and finesse, providing sharp red berry fruit flavours and earthy undertones. The fresh acidity and ripe tannins frame the fruit while giving the wine enough weight to hold up to rich food dishes.

Tasting Notes:
A beautiful intense, dark colour. A nose marked by notes of ripe red fruit. On the palate, a nice power mixed with the elegance of silky tannins.

Food Pairing: making it a wonderful accompaniment with dishes like rabbit, filet mignon and pork tenderloin.

In 1894 Ferdinand Charleux founded what would eventually become Domaine Maurice Charleux & Fils in Dezize-les-Maranges southwest of Santenay, at the southern border of the Côte d`Or in Burgundy. In 1970 Maurice took over the vineyards and began selling wine under his own name, eventually handing the reins to his son Vincent who currently is in charge. Today the Domaine covers just under 10 hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines that are farmed sustainably.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
