Tasting Notes: At first,Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière has a beautiful yellow gold dress. Then, the nose is subtle and delicate like all the great white wines of the Côte de Beaune with dominant notes of white flowers (hawthorn) complemented by aromas of fruit (Mango, mirabelle plums).
Aging in barrels completes the aromatic palette with slightly toasted notes (Brioche, gingerbread). As a result this wine is complex with a subtle balance between richness, power and mineral and fresh notes on the palate.
After a few years, it will pairs beautifully with dumplings or an extra old Gouda.
