Back Up The Truck - Red Burgundy:
2017 Bachelet-Monnot Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière Rouge

Posted by Ian McFadden

I'm always looking out for value in red Burgundy. Maybe three or four times a year, I find something special.

Today, I'm very happy to present my latest find. At as low as $39.95 per bottle, this is a jaw-dropping deal.

Bachelet-Monnot is a revelatory expression of Burgundy. In 2005, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet founded Bachelet-Monnot. In no time their wines were turning the heads of even the most seasoned Burgundy tasters. Maranges is their home turf and they elevate the appellation far beyond what you'd expect. 

The style of Bachelet-Monnot is animated by impeccable balance and precision. Their Marange bottlings maintain an expertly judged rustic edge that stays true to the appellation. However, they also manage to tease out an extraordinary amount of finesse from their sites. 

The 2017 Fussière Rouge amplifies the elegance and purity that they manage to capture in their Maranges. The purity of fruit and finely etched minerality is impressive. It's a perfect example of why I love to drink the 2017. They are so radiant and open. 

I'm going to wrap this up. I bought every bottle that was available, but it's still a fairly modest parcel. At this price and with Bachelet-Monnot's reputation, I doubt these bottles will stick around for long.
