Maranges 1er Cru "Clos des Loyères"

50 years

The grapes come from the vineyards of Sampigny Les Maranges in the Côte de Beaune, close from Santenay. It is the south of the Côte de Beaune Soil: clay and mostly limestone. Strong slope. Grapes variety: 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (15% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 12 to 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar ("fruit day”) for the bottling without fining and filtering.

The Maranges 1er Cru Clos des Loyères has a fruity bouquet of wild red fruits. When holder, characterized by chestnut and dried plum.

roasted meats, game and various cheese.
