This is a blend of two parcels. Just over half (55%) comes from a village parcel, but the other 45% comes from the 1er Cru Clos Rousseau vineyard, which is an extension of the vineyard of the same name in Santenay. It is so bright and energetic, with a crunchy texture and well-handled tannins, giving it bite, but no hard edges. This is vibrant, red-fruited, light-bodied, crisp Pinot Noir. 15% whole bunch fruit gives it a sweet and lifted air.
The 2020 Maranges Village has a well-defined bouquet of very pure red cherry and raspberry fruit laced with rose petal and orange pith. The well-balanced palate delivers pliant tannins, the 10–15% whole bunch well integrated, and a very light bitter edge on the spicy finish. This will be difficult to resist young.
