Fussieres has distinct terroir definition. Zingy, tangy, lots of ‘edge’, tension and energy. Saline.
Just smell the aromas of green orchard fruit, honeycomb, citrus oil and oatmeal when poured.
Fussieres is the largest ‘climat’ (parcel) of Maranges, covering some 35 hectares in total. Charleux farms 1.82 ha. It has a south-facing exposure and lies in the middle of the slope at an altitude of 290 to 400 meters.
The soil is often white limestone over blue-coloured marl, replete with fossils. This wine comes from 35 to 50 year-old vines, which helps amplify the wines concentration and finesse. The aromas simply leap from your glass. Wonderful orange peel, zest, spice and spice
