Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Chanson owns a vineyard of 5.4 hectares in premier Cru "Les Vergelesses". The plot is located in a hollow at the bottom of the hill of Corton and its clay and limestone soil combination gives wines with a specific structure.
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of ripe black and red berries mixed with liquorice. Well-crafted and complex. Very pure fruit. The tannins are firm but well-integrated. Long and intense finish.
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
