Crushed and Cured
Chanzy, Maranges, 1er Cru La Fussiere,
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.
