Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

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 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in Summer were ideal with cold nights and warm days and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest started early September under a bright sunshine. The red wines develop beautiful aromas of ripe red and black berries with a fleshy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Complex aromas mixed with subtle floral fragrances (peony, violet) Dense and refined texture. Creamy with silky tannins.
Food pairing : Can be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or "en sauce" and our local cheeses like Epoisses, Citeaux and Langres.
