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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Floral fragrances mixed with fresh aromas of ripe red berries (raspberry) and cherries with a hint of vanilla. Dense and complex. Very pure fruit. Refined tannins. 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.
