Belland Maranges 1er cru “la Fussière” 2016
Roger Belland is an excellent source for easy drinking, approachable red Burgundy. They use a long, very cool fermentation to retain the fruit in their wines. This Maranges is from a south-facing vineyard and a vintage with excellent ripeness — it’s lively, round, and, as Belland puts it, “very gourmand.”
In the nose there’s intense, juicy, bursting cranberry fruit, with notes of honey and tulips. The mouth is pleasant and punchy with young, approachable tannins, no raspiness, and a clean refreshing finish. Burghound found it “very round” with “nicely voluminous flavors” and “pliant tannins.”
