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 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.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Fragrances of Violet mixed with ripe red berries and plum and an array of spices. Delicate vanilla note. Well balanced and well-edged. Good depth. Beautiful texture. Direct firm tannins. Generous and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
