The Vintage 2020 : After a very mild winter, spring arrived with warm temperatures in March which engendered a very quick and sustained growth of the vines. After a very short frost episode early May with no consequence in the vineyards, a mild weather with some rains settled down until end of June. Summer was punctuated in July by several and quite long heat waves. Vineyards with a clay soil were less affected by the low level of rainfalls during spring and by the summer heat. The harvest in Burgundy started around August 20, which was historically early for the region. At Chanson, they started on August 24 under a bright sunshine. 2020 red wines are generous, concentrated and beautifully terroir-driven.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries mixed with liquorice. Well-structured and complex. Deep and finely woven texture. Long and generous finish with fruity and spicy tinges.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meats, pâté, pie, grilled or roasted meat, fowles and "fromages à pâte pressée".
