Nuiton-Beaunoy Maranges 2019
From the Côte de Beaune region in Burgundy, this offers good buying for a wine from the illustrious golden slopes. Purple/magenta in hue, the nose is bursting with big bold black cherries. There are also notes of plums, milk chocolate, mulberries, licorice, black fruits and well-integrated oak. Hints of sour cherries emerge on the palate, especially towards the finish, with juicy acidity. Surprisingly long, I like this a lot and it is a joy to drink now and any time over the next three to five years.
