Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marl with sandy yellow limestone
Site : Chanson is one of the major owners of Clos des Mouches with a vineyard of 4.5 hectares. Ideal location on the hill at the southern end of the vineyards of Beaune on a spur pointing toward Pommard . A plot of 2.5 hectares is planted with Pinot Noir on a limestone subsoil covered with clay.
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 15 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Floral fragrances with aromas of raspberry and a delicate chocolate note enhanced by an array of spices. Complex and elegant. Ample and delicate texture. Harmonious oak note and fine grained tannins. Long and refined aftertaste.
Food pairing : Can be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or "en sauce" and our local cheeses like Epoisses, Citeaux and Langres.
