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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Floral Fragrances mixed with ripe black berries and spices. Well-crafted and concentrated. Good volume. The tannins are firm but well-integrated. Long and generous finish with a beautiful fruit. SCORE : 17/20 - JANCIS ROBINSON
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
