Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Chanson owns a vineyard of 5.4 hectares in premier Cru "Les Vergelesses". One of the plots of this vineyard has been selected to produce this Pernand-Vergelesses village.
The Vintage 2010 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 18 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of ripe red berries, plum and red berry liquor mixed with spices. Delicate vanilla note. Generous and complex. Soft texture. Very pure aromas. Elegant tannins. Long and inviting fruity finish.
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
