Belland Maranges 1er cru “la Fussière” 2017
Roger Belland is an excellent source for easy drinking red Burgundy. The domaine uses a long, very cool fermentation to retain the fruit in their wines. His 2017s are even more approachable young than usual. The French have taken to calling the 2017 reds “restaurant wines,” a nod to their abundance, approachability, and charm.
Belland’s 2017 Maranges is from a south-facing vineyard and a vintage with excellent ripeness; Burghound called it “nicely vibrant” with an “appealing texture.” In the nose we found 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.
