Bonnes-Mares; our plot (0,30 ha) is at the top of the hill.
Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru
Les Fuées has all the depth of its famous neighbour, but a finer texture. On the palate, you will find firm tannins that bring long-lasting, vibrant viscosity, accompanying the very complex aromatic expression: cherry, raspberry, peony, violet, rose, black pepper, cardamom, and marine notes. The lengthy persistence of the finish ends on a delicate note.
This wine has great ageing potential, from 10 to 20 years, but you can drink it in the first 5 years by decanting it one hour before serving.
Depending on the vintage, for these 45-year-old vines, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation, and ageing lasts about 18 months in barrels.
It pairs well with baked monkfish served with yellow courgettes and cumin, roast pigeon and truffled potatoes, stuffed aubergines, or Brillat Savarin cheese.
