Domaine Chevrot et Fils Maranges 1er Cru “La Croix Moines” Rouge 2015

$145.00 inc. GST

A jumble of well-ripe raspberry, cherry, nutmeg, ginger and hints of mint seduce immediately. On the palate, this very concentrated wine reveals its highly accessible charms, with perfectly mature red fruits carried forth by mineral freshness that unfolds to an unctuous and a finely tannic finish.

For each vintage, the Domain produces just two barrels of this Maranges Premier Cru, aged 16 months in Burgundy oak barrels. In the bouquet, the toasted notes of ageing, still present, are already mingled with the spice of nutmeg and cumin… Its palate reveals all the finesse of which Côte de Beaune pinot noirs are capable, with small red fruits ripe to a T and carried by lovely vivacity. A great wine more elegant than explosive that will be unveiled after a few years of albeit sacrificial waiting, but years which will reveal all its potential.
