Review:
The 2018 Maranges La Fussières 1er Cru Rouge contains 30% whole-bunch fruit that according to the domaine always gives good acidity levels. It has a generous bouquet of black cherries and raspberry aromas, much more vigorous than the Bourgogne Rouge. The whole bunch works really well here; the palate is very well balanced with sappy red fruit and fine acidity, and succulent and quite saline toward the finish. This comes highly recommended.
