Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marly limestone - rough limestone with silt of clay
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 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Aging in oak during 19 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Very pure aromas of red berries mixed with coffee and spices and enhanced by a delicate vanilla note. Well-balanced and complex. Beautiful texture. Very pure fruit. Finely defined tannins. Elegant oak. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red or white meat, grilled or toasted, games or classic cheeses like goat.
