Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of clay and limestone
Site : The Premiers Crus vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars. This cuvée is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the domaine located on the hill of Beaune.
The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of Summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian Summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 15 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of raspberry and blackberry mixed with spicy nuances. Dense and well-structured. Very refreshing fruit aromas. Well-shaped tannins and subtle oak note. Long and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Red meat grilled or en sauce and all sorts of cheeses, especially our local cheeses like Époisses, Citeaux and Langres.
