Clos Marey-Monge 75 Rangs 2017
The 75 rows of the eponymous plot produce a ruby-colored Pinot Noir praised to bring skeleton to our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole blend. Both the nose and palate display aromas of black and red fruit, such as frutti di bosco, alongside wild notes of musk and smokle creating a distinctive and elegant animality. With a salty, mineral finish, our 75 Rangs 2017 is a Pinot Noir made for aging.ALCOHOL13.6%SERVING TEMP.16°CDRINKABILITYNow to 25 years
Thousands of years ago, an underground spring flooded the 0.85 hectare of 75 Rangs with minerals. Planted in 1962 and 1964, this plot located at the lowest topographic position in the Clos Marey-Monge benefits from shallow and limestone-rich soil that produces a Pinot Noir rich in minerals with a salty finish.APPELLATIONPommardPLOT SIZE0.85 hectareAGE OF VINES55 to 77 years

The 75 rows of the eponymous plot allow us to develop a wine with a ruby color, reputed to be the backbone of our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole. Its nose reveals aromas of rose and red fruit highlighted by iodine and mineral notes. The palate is fresh and deliciously chiseled. The tannins are silky and the wine's airy side is reinforced by a singular salinity. With its saline, mineraly finish, our 75 Rangs 2018 stands out as a refined wine built for aging.
