It has a pale golden color.
The nose is very fresh, reminiscent of a mix of flowers and fragrances of white-fleshed fruits and citrus fruits such as lemon peel, with hints of vanilla bean. Having been vinified and aged for 10-14 months in oak barrels, with a small proportion of new wood, the toasted aromas are as evident as they are pleasant.
In the mouth it is well structured, complex and balanced, with a precise acidity that helps us denote a long and persistent finish.
A wine of good versatility, perfect with French gastronomic dishes typical of the region, including grilled fish, white meats and cheeses with intense aromas and flavors, such as Epoisses, Rochefort or Munster.
WHO CAN CONTRACT
Domaine Chanson was founded in 1750 by Sinon Véry, during the reign of Louis XV. In the 19th century, it was Nicolas Chanson who gave his name to this commercial house. After overcoming the serious phylloxera crisis at the end of the 19th century, Chanson Pére & Fils continued to grow. It has been owned by Bollinger since 1999. One of the oldest wineries in Burgundy, it is located in Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. It produces its wines in a 16th century fortress, a former defense tower of the city, a bastion, now a historical monument. Its cellar has four levels. Red wines are aged on the first three levels and the last level is reserved for white wines.
In 2020, its management changed. Vincent Avenel has taken the reins of the house. Until June 2020 they were advised by Jean-Pierre Confuron, both in the vineyard and in winemaking. We will see from the 2020 vintage how the brand will evolve.
They have 45 hectares of vineyards located in the reference crus of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, only in plots of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus.
As white wines they produce Rully, Les Caradeux, Clos des Mouches, Les Chenevottes and Chassagne. As reds, Beauregard, Dominode, Les Vergelesses, Gevrey-Chamberti and Clos des Fèves.
