Domaine Bachey-Legros vieilles vignes 2020 (AOC Maranges): a Pinot Noir between modernity and tradition

Maranges is a quiet and welcoming village, located between Beaune's côte and Chalonnaise's côte of Burgundy. It is characterized by its imposing vineyards that extend along the mountain slopes. The town is small, but it has a lot of charm, and the locals are very hospitable and friendly. Maranges is known for for containing seven first Cru and produce almost exclusively red wine. Let's taste the old vines planted in 1955 by this historic domaine founded in Santenay village.

In the glass we find the medium opacity of the Borgundy reds. Having uncorked three years after the harvest we found logical signs of evolution. On the nose, notes of ripe forest fruit appear along with those of that wonderful evolution that brings hommos, eucalyptus and a walk with my blonde through the forest. Dry entry in the mouth. Delicate and feminine development. The good Pinot Noir freshness always. Notes of macerated berry fruit, with an elegant and silky texture that is a pleasure. Long finish, which brings a basket of livid red fruits that positively persist.

This 18 hectare domaine is run by the sixth generation of the family, making it a historic winery in south-central Burgundy. Its price, 28 euros, is in line with the Village category, which is the most in demand at the large tables in Europe and the USA. Also the most terroir products pair wonderfully with the Burgundy classics. I'm thinking of a piece of Chevrotin cheese on a toasted slice of village bread. This French cheese is characterized by its thick and lumpy bark, which has a dark brown hue, with notes of almonds, butter and walnut, as well as a touch of bitterness. Goutez et commentez.
