Bruno Colin Maranges Rouge La Fussiere 1er Cru 2013

Bruno Colin Maranges Rouge La Fussiere 1er Cru 2013

100% Pinot Noir. Michel Colin was the third generation in his family to grow grapes in Burgundy within the prestigious Côte de Beaune. When he retired in 2003, he handed the property over to his sons, Philippe and Bruno, who split the holdings between them to bottle under separate labels. With the help of his wife, Stéphanie, Bruno farms eight hectares of land, in thirty different parcels scattered over five communes, with sometimes as little as just a few rows per parcel. To farm under these circumstances is quintessentially Burgundian. In the old family winery in the center of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, he vinifies over twenty cuvées separately, more than half of which are premier cru! He uses traditional vinification methods and ages his wines anywhere from twelve to eighteen months in barrel, though he tends to vinify each parcel in a similar fashion. Bruno’s style shows beautiful balance, both aromatically and texturally, while showcasing the delicate minerality and nuanced complexity of each vineyard. His Maranges Rouge La Fussiere 1er Cru is so damn underrated. Coming from 25 years old vines on clay and limestone from the best vineyard in the Maranges appellation, La Fussiere, this is a typical robust Pinot from this appellation. After several years of aging, it has settled into a beautiful place and should be enjoyed with people that are special to you.

Tasting Notes
"The 2013 Maranges 1er Cru La Fussières offers dark cherry and briary scents on the nose that show a little more delineation than the Santenay Gravières at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sharp tannins, a good level of acidity and attractive blackcurrant and balsamic notes toward the structured finish." - Neal Martin
