Beaune Bastion Pinot Noir
1er Cru 2013

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 - Beaune Clos du Roi, Beaune Clos des Marconnets, Beaune Bressandes, Beaune Teurons, Beaune Champimonts, Beaune Clos des Mouches and Beaune Clos des Fèves Monopole. This association of the different terroirs of Beaune Premiers Crus and among them the flagships of Chanson give to the wine a unique character and texture.

The Vintage 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 15 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Floral fragrances (violet) and red current mixed with toasted bread. Dense and complex. Elegant and silky texture. Subtle oak note. Generous aftertaste.

Food pairing : Red meat grilled or en sauce and all sorts of cheeses, especially our local cheeses like Époisses, Citeaux and Langres.
