Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone with lots of stones
Site : Chanson owns 3 ha in this climat located in the Premiers Crus area of Santenay, small village in the South of the Côte de Beaune. The plot is at the top of the hill and is positioned on two levels. The large proportion of stones gives to the wine a very special minerality which emphasizes the typicality of the Pinot Noir.
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 12 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of dark berries (dark cherries) mixed with violet fragrances and earthy notes on a hint of vanilla. Beautiful structure, energetic. Complex with well-integrated tannins and a delicate oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with roast meat or stew dishes as well as moderately nature cheeses.
