Bastion Beaune Pinot Noir
1er Cru 2018

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Mix of clay and limestone

Site : The Premiers Crus vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars.This cuvée is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the Domaine - Beaune Clos du Roi, Beaune Clos des Marconnets, Beaune Bressandes, Beaune Teurons, Beaune Champimonts, Beaune Clos des Mouches and Beaune Clos des Fèves Monopole. This association of the different terroirs of Beaune Premiers Crus and among them the flagships of Chanson give to the wine a unique character and texture.

The Vintage 2018 : After a rainy winter, a heat wave in April followed by a cold period in May, the weather settled down in Burgundy with warm temperatures in June. Summer was warm and dry. It was punctuated by several heat waves which engendered a lack of water, compensated by the presence of clay in many plots.The harvest started in the last days of August with an excellent maturity of the grapes. The red wines are crunchy, deep and dense with an outstanding aromatic complexity. Vinification : whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe berries (black-berries, raspberries) and plum liquor mixed with spices. Well-balanced and complex. Deep texture with a very pure fruit. Well shaped tannins. Long and spicy finish. Score : 91/100 BURGHOUND

Food pairing : Red meat grilled or en sauce and all sorts of cheeses, especially our local cheeses like Epoisses, Citeaux and Langres.
