Review:
The 2018 Maranges Clos de la Boutière 1er Cru comes from a parcel of 80-year-old selection massale vines (the domaine being one of only two to produce bottlings from this Premier Cru). It has a well-defined bouquet that is a little more mineral-driven compared to the La Fussières. The palate is framed by fine tannins and crisp, slightly tart red cherry and wild strawberry fruit. This Clos de la Boutière is very precise and translates the terroir with style and verve. Just superb.
