Beaune Teurons
1er Cru 2002

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Mix of limestone and clay.

Site : In the heart of the Premier Cru vineyards of Domaine Chanson, this plot covers 4 hectares in the center of the Beaune territory.

The Vintage 2002 : The harvest took place at the end of September, several days after the official beginning of the harvest in order to obtain the best possible maturation of the berries. Excellent weather conditions prevailed in August and September and hence the good quality of the grapes. A severe pruning had been carried out in July 2002 to limit yields. Aging in oak casks during 18 months

Tasting : Bright ruby red. Pungent bouquet of violets and red berries mixed with subtle hint of spiciness. There is a good follow-through of the fruit onto the palate enhanced by subtle oak nuances. The wine is concentrated, well-balanced and well-structured with an elegant tannic structure. It has a long and lingering aftertaste.

Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, "Boeuf Bourguignon" and variety of regional cheeses, in particular goat's cheese and Citeaux.
