Côte de Beaune
Red Table Wine
Chanson Pere et Fils
“Les Marconnets” are located in the Northern hint of the Appelation Beaune 1er Cru. The name of this vineyard referred to the german tribe “Marcomans”. Chanson owns 4 hectares, i.e, 40% of the vineyard. The hand-harvested fruit undergoes whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks. The wines are then aged in Chanson’s 15th century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months with moderate use of new oak.
Showing garnet colour in glass. Aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry mixed with spicy nuances. Complex, deep with a fleshy texture and ample tannins with a long finish.
“A subtle vegetal aroma accents the central theme of black cherry and blackberry fruit, picking up warm spice notes as this plays out on the palate. Floral and mineral elements peek through as this builds to the lengthy finish. The tannins leave a dusty impression. Best from 2022 through 2038.” 93 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, April 2019
“This is the first wine to display any appreciable reduction with a more moderate amount of oak influence as well. Otherwise there is both good lift and punch to the attractively mineral-inflected middle weight flavours that possess a lovely mouth feel if not nearly the same mid-palate density while exhibiting a lingering and youthfully austere finish where a touch of oak surfaces.” 92 points, Burghound, April 2018
“The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Marconnets offers more perfumed, red cherry fruit on the nose compared to the Teurons and Clos du Roi, well defined with good vigour. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, grainy in texture with touches of black truffle decorating the structured finish. Give this three of four years in bottle and you will have a delightful Beaune Premier Cru.” 92 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, December 2017
