This well-situated vineyard in the commune of Cheilly-les-Maranges is nestled in the southeast corner of Maranges very close to the border of Santenay, and Nathalie owns a 0.4-hectare parcel of Pinot Noir here. Aged for 18 months in 20% new oak, “Les Regains” displays an iron-tinged minerality and a muscularity of structure not unlike that of a Nuits-Saint-Georges, yet its black fruit is delivered with energy, tension, and lift. Tannins are punchy but not rude, and the overall balance is noteworthy, particularly for an appellation prone to rusticity.
