Beautiful dark red colour, with purple reflections. The bouquet is very expressive with notes of sour cherry, liquorice and chalky notes. It is a wine with finesse and a very long finish.

Chanzy is a 80 hectare Estate, divided between Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits with their base in Bouzeron. All of Chanzy’s wines are made with at least 90% Estate-grown fruit, practically unheard of for a Burgundy producer of this size. Chanzy owns 5 Clos including 2 Monopoles, 11 Grands Crus and 16 Premiers Crus. They are one of the few Burgundy producers to achieve Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3; the most highly regarded certification for agriculture in France.

The Maranges vineyard, which is primarily a Pinot Noir red wine area, also has few Chardonnay vines. It forms the link between the Côte d'Or and the Saône-et Loire. It is perfectly consonant with Santenay, with which it shares several esteemed vintages.

Cold pre-fermentation maceration for ten days with pumping over and punching down under temperature control throughout the fermentation.
