2019 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Maranges Clos de la Boutiere Premier Cru
Firm reduction currently dominates the nose though there is both good freshness and punch to the firm and rather rustic middle weight flavors that conclude in a somewhat awkward finish. This wasn't showing particularly well but the underlying material appears to be of quality and my range offers the benefit of the doubt. Drink 2026+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2019 Maranges 1er Cru Clos de la Boutière is terrific, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, woodsmoke and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, with rich, powdery tannins and succulent acids, it will reward at least a few years' bottle age. Drink 2025 - 2045.
