This charismatic old vine cuvée is drawn from two plots: Le Chamery in Cheilly-lès-Maranges and Le Clos in Sampigny-lès-Maranges. The vines are over 50 years old, and the soils tend towards red clay, shot through with rocky chalk. Alexandre Bachelet notes that these terroirs are reasonably warm, and he uses a significant percentage of whole bunches (although less than usual in 2021) to balance the depth of fruit. It’s a smart wine packed with dark cherry and bitter chocolate notes and plenty of powdery tannins. Terrific value now, this will be even better with a few years in bottle.

Reviews

“Rich bright purple. A little more density in the bouquet, a sweeter raspberry style of fruit, medium bodied, slightly firmer structure behind, then more cherries come out, a nice overall balance for reasonably early drinking.”
87-89 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
"The 2021 Maranges Vieilles Vignes does not quite possess the harmony and precision of Bachelet-Monnot's other reds, maybe just a tad rustic and simple. The palate is better with crunchy red fruit and fine acidity, the oak just a little more marked than expected. That should be subsumed with time though."
