Maranges Premier Cru has a seductive ruby red colour and an intense nose where wild berries and damp undergrowth mingle. On the palate, it discloses an unusual sturdiness (râblé is the word used in Burgundy), especially when young: firm tannins and earthy tones are the norm. The wine smoothes out as it ages to become round and easy to drink.
Maranges Premier Cru is the perfect wine for hearty stews such as coq au vin or civet de lapin. This is a heart warming wine for cold winter evenings!
