Behind its shiny garnet color, Maranges Premier Cru “Le Clos des Loyères” wine offers red fruits, cloves, white pepper aromas. The palate is smooth and silky. Complex and with long finish, it is an excellent expression of Pinot from a lesser known climat in Burgundy.

Located in the very south of the Côte de Beaune, Maranges “Le Clos des Loyères” marly-clay and limestone- rich soils produce a Pinot Noir bursting with freshness, energy, and length.
