About
Roger Belland Maranges 1er Cru "La Fussiere" 2022 is a dry red wine, known for its distinct expression of Pinot Noir, the sole grape variety used in its production. Originating from the Maranges appellation in Burgundy, France, this wine exemplifies the region's rich winemaking tradition with a focus on terroir-driven qualities. Its crafting process, attentive to the nuances of the climate and soil, ensures a wine of exceptional depth and complexity.
Producer
The Roger-Joseph Belland winery has been owned by the Belland family for the sixth generation. The vineyards are mostly located in the best terroirs of Les Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard Premiers and Grands Crus. The harvest is done entirely by hand, with a very careful selection of the best grapes, which are later moved into very small boxes so that nothing spoils the perfect berries. Maceration and fermentation, thanks to modern technologies, take place at very low temperatures to create complex, pleasantly round and fruity wines. After aging in French oak barrels, the wines are bottled right there in the winery.
Tasting notes

Upon tasting, the wine reveals a bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, underscored by subtle hints of earth and spice, reflecting the terroir’s unique characteristics. The palate is treated to a balanced structure, with a silky texture and fine tannins leading to a lingering finish that echoes notes of cherry and blackberry, intertwined with a light touch of oak. This complexity and elegance make it a memorable experience for the senses.

Pairing

Pinot Noir has very aromatic profile, very fresh acidity and low level of quaite soft tannins. The nature of Pinot Noir wine is its flavors of red berries and cherry (red sour cherries in lighter wines and cooked black cherries in bold examples). This wine matures very exating, developing notes of berry jam, violets, leather, moss and mushrooms.
Burgundy (Bourgogne) can be confusing because of the multiplicity of its appellations - all the small vineyards are divided between multiple producers so it can often be difficult to understand this diversity. However, it is the exact reason why the wines of Burgundy are considered to be the finest in the world. A common topic of discussion, when talking about Burgundy, is the concept of "terroir" - a unique combination of soil and climate conditions that affects the taste of wine in the appellations, making it unique to each village. Winemakers mainly use the capricious Pinot Noir and the classical Chardonnay to create true masterpieces, while Gamay and Aligote are used to make wines of a bit simpler style. Particular attention should be paid to the hierarchy of wines. First there are the regional and village wines, a step higher - the Premier Cru wines and the outstanding Grand Cru - at the top. Due the complex and inconsistent weather that can notably impact wine quality especially in bad harvest years, a very important factor here is the so called millesime - the harvest year of the grapes the particular wine is produced of, because each of these years has its own unique taste. Purchasing Burgundy wines is not easy because there are many details that should be taken into consideration - the class of the vineyard, the assessment of the manufacturer, the age of the vines, the quality of the wine as well as the millesime and, of course, the potential of ageing. The sellers play a big role here - they must be truly passionate about wine and able to offer only the best quality producers with a good reputation. That is exactly the way "Noble Wine" works!
