1er Cru La Fuissière
The Maranges area, forms a link between the Côte-d’Or and the Saône-et-Loire.
Neighboring the Santenay appellation, the Maranges appellation is located on the southern tip of the Côte de Beaune. Mostly planted in Pinot Noir, the hills forming this vineyard has a south/south-east exposure, with an altitude oscillating between 240 and 400 meters.
