1 2017 maranges vigne blanche

At the southernmost end of the Côte d'Or is the relatively new (1989) appellation of Maranges, composed of the villages Cheilly, Dezize, and Sampigny. Formerly considered a source of structured blending wine for punching up Côtes-du-Beaune Villages wines, Maranges now produces some affordable Burgundy of great character.

Located in the town of Sampigny-lès-Maranges, Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey’s Domaine des Rouges Queues produces lovely wines which start with old vines and great farming. The Vanteys have worked the vines without chemicals since 1998 and made the transition to biodynamics from 2008.

Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey founded their small winery in Sampigny-Lès-Maranges in 1998 with one hectare of Maranges vineyards. They began adding parcels of other vineyards to form an estate which today encompasses 14 acres spread over 10 appellations.

"Blessed with an enviable patrimony of vineyard holdings and plenty of old vines too...The ensuing wines are beautifully fragrant, with filigree tannins, vibrant fruit tones and sneaky persistence.  In short, Domaine Duroché continues its ascent, and readers who haven't yet taken notice should do so before it's too late." - William Kelly, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


Pierre Duroché has quickly become one of Gevrey’s most exciting winemakers.  When it comes to purity of expression and coaxing an intricate and subtle complexity from Gevrey, it's clear that Duroché has the touch. It's impossible not to be wowed by Duroché's Grand Crus, but the true sensitivity and quality of the winemaking is best seen in the lieu-dits bottlings. They make abundantly clear the precision and attention to detail that's in play at this domain.  

Pierre Duroché, a 5th generation winemaker, took over the domain in 2005 and quality has skyrocketed. The transition gave the domain a huge boost of energy. The wines were good in the past, but now they’re on a whole new level - and getting better and better with each vintage.  Once you taste Duroché’s wines, you're immediately convinced that they're important. The 2017s are some of the best yet. Don’t miss.
