Goedhuis, December 2021
2020 is Elodie’s first vintage producing this wine as a single lieu-dit. In her view, it is always such a profound wine that it warrants being sold as an individual cuvée. With 60% whole bunch fermented fruit and 40% new oak, this is a very structured style, with masses of dark hedgerow fruits. It has a wild gamey Pinot personality and tremendous length on the finish.
Neal Martin, December 2021,
The 2020 Maranges Le Goty, from 0.28 hectares, suffered a lot of millerandé bunches this year, resulting in a production of 1,600 bottles. This cuvée contains 50% whole bunch. It presents a more tensile bouquet than the La Rue de Pierres, the fruit a little darker and riper by comparison, and more plummy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the 45% new oak lending depth, and quite peppery and spicy toward the finish. This is a fine Maranges to drink over several years.

Domaine Elodie Roy
Vineyards are in Elodie Roy’s blood. She grew up at this 10-hectare domaine developed by her grandfather Robert and father Pierre, in the most southerly appellation of the Côte de Beaune, Maranges. Her eyes light up when she talks about her idyllic childhood enjoying the beauty of her surroundings. After university, realising law and banking were not for her, it wasn’t practical for Elodie to immediately return to the family domaine, so she sought to cut her teeth in wine production elsewhere. She couldn’t have chosen better than 11 years assisting Anne Gros in Vosne Romanée. After such an extraordinary apprenticeship, in 2018 Elodie was eager to return and take over the family estate in her own right. Maranges became an individual appellation in 1988. Historically it was seen as a white wine appellation but in recent years, thanks to a group of highly committed vignerons, it has carefully been building a reputation as a source of fine Pinot Noir.
The southernmost village wine appellation in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, Maragnes produces medium-bodied red wines to be drunk when young.
