2007 Domaine des Equipages Maranges

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Monday, June 22, 2009 - I was only able to get 4 bottles of this extraordinary wine. He only makes 1500 bottles a year. The wine is made in an ecological manner, no electricity is used, horses are the power, manure is the fertiliser, the wine is not even filtered or fined and so on. The colour is full with a possible rim just beginning. There is a sweetish farmyard smell to it. The initial taste is of full warm and soft fruit with a slight raisiny sweetness, the mid palate has hardly any tannins or they are at least too soft to notice, the expected acidity is very gentle and there is a delightful and long fade. This wine has a clear and individual signature - drinking it you would never believe it to be only 18 months old, more like a premier cru at say 6 or even seven years. It will be very hard to leave it for the next few years.
