“Les Marconnets” are located in the Northern part of the Appellation Beaune 1er Cru. The name of this vineyard refers to the german tribe “Marcomans”. Chanson owns 4 ha, i.e, 40% of the vineyard.
The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms which brought some rain. The harvest started mid September under a bright sunshine. After a whole cluster fermentation in vat, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 14 up to 18 months in the XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Garnet colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries mixed with raspberry liquor and a hint of vanilla. Complex, with a fleshy texture. Beautiful tannic structure. Long and elegant finish on a hint of minerality.
