Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of limestone and clay.
Site : In the heart of the Premier Cru vineyards of Domaine Chanson, this plot covers 4 hectares in the center of the Beaune territory.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of raspberry and strawberry jam. Delicate vanilla note. Well-balanced. Very fine texture. Very pure fruit. Well-crafted tannins. Delicate oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, "Boeuf Bourguignon" and variety of regional cheeses, in particular goat's cheese and Citeaux.
