Behind its light ruby color, the wine reveals aromas of wild and black fruits, lined with notes of vanilla, cloves, pepper, and a hint of flowers and almonds. The same flavors appear on the palate, enhancing the character of this well-balanced and elegant red. The tannins are smooth and silky and well integrated. Approachable now, this wine will age beautifully.

Created in 1988, the Maranges appellation includes three villages – Cheilly-lès-Maranges, Dezize-lès-Maranges, and Sampigny-lès-Maranges – and holds seven Premiers Crus.
