Located in the Côte de Nuits, these grapes stem from a selected plot in the northern part of appellation which are located mid slope and border the Premiers Crus. The hand-harvested grapes are whole bunch fermented for approximately two weeks and are then aged in Chanson’s 15th century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months, seeing a moderate use of new oak.
Showing deep ruby garnet in the glass, this is a wine which shows a mix of delicate floral fragrances with red cherry, plum and vanilla. Crunchy, deep and dense with an outstanding aromatic complexity and well-integrated tannins. A dense and mouth-coating texture gives way to a long and elegant finish.

- Beaune Clos des Marconnets 1er Cru 2016
“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.”

- Beaune Clos des Fèves 1er Cru 2014
“A much more moderate application of wood frames the more elegant and cooler aromas of red berries, plum, exotic tea and sandalwood nuances. There is a really lovely sense of energy and underlying tension to the well-delineated and relatively fine middle weight flavors where the accompanying minerality is more evident, all wrapped in a very firm but not really austere finish. Worth a look if you have the patience to allow this to age for at least 5 to 7 years first.”

- Nuits St Georges 2015
“Here too the nose is reduced with plenty of wood influence. On the plus side there are spice and cinnamon nuances to the very rich, ripe, concentrated and powerful flavors that possess excellent depth and persistence for a Nuits villages. This is quite impressive though note that it is also built-to-age and is definitely going to need it. 2025+”
