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 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. It gave way early September to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir. Aging in oak during 19 months
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of ripe black cherry and plum mixed with an array of spices. Delicate vanilla note. Well-balanced and concentrated. Tight texture. Very pure aromatic combination. Well-crafted tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, "Boeuf Bourguignon" and variety of regional cheeses, in particular goat's cheese and Citeaux.
