Côte de Beaune
Red Table Wine
Chanson Pere et Fils
Chanson owns 3 hectares in this climat located in the Premiers Crus area of Santenay, a 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 the wine a very special minerality which emphasizes the typicality of the Pinot Noir.
After a whole cluster fermentation in vat, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 14 up to 18 months in Chanson’s 15th century cellar with moderate use of new oak.
Bright ruby in colour. Intense aromas of ripe red cherry and raspberry mixed with violet fragrances on a hint of vanilla. Complex and concentrated with deep and elegant structure and well-integrated tannins. The finish is long and fruity. With over 5 years of age, this is a fleeting opportunity to experience a 1er Cru Pinot Noir that is ready to drink now. Try with a beef bourguignon, or roasted chicken served with mushrooms and root vegetables.
“They have three hectares here in a plot on the top of the hill, with bony, stony soils. So pure, pretty and floral with lovely fruit focus. Low extraction style with appealing sweet ripe cherries and plums.” 93 points, Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, December 2021
“Lovely, forward plummy fruit, and a pleasantly round texture backed up by silky tannins and no evidence of astringency. Well done. Picked early enough to have a fairly modest (for the year) alcohol of 13.2%. The hectare of vines in Beauregard are located high on slope in very little soil directly on the limestone. The fruit was destemmed (contrary to normal practice) and is being aged in 25% new casks.”
