2015 Maranges 1er Cru “La Fussière”

Jean-Claude Regnaudot et Fils

2015 Maranges <em>1er Cru</em> “La Fussière” Jean-Claude Regnaudot et Fils - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
It’s best to let the Regnaudot wines speak for themselves. When Didier Regnaudot recently stopped by the Beaune office, I asked what he thought of his 2015 Fussière. Now, I knew the man was reserved, but as he searched for words (and, seemingly, the nearest exit), I was reminded that in the producer-importer relationship it’s our job to talk about the wine. Didier is not one to sing his own praises, but thankfully, his wines aren’t as shy as he is. Open this bottle and Didier’s gregarious alter ego emerges, big and powerful with surprisingly smooth edges. Expect mouth-filling ripe blackberry fruit and delightfully silky tannins. –Emily Spillmann

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
