Domaine Chanson Santenay-Beauregard Premier Cru 2016

$110.00

Chanson owns 3 ha in this climat located in the Premiers Crus area of Santenay, a small village in the South of the Côte de Beaune. The plot is at the top of the hill and is positioned on two levels with clay and limestone with lots of stones. The large proportion of stones gives to the wine a very special minerality which emphasises the typicality of the Pinot Noir. Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries mixed with violet fragrances on a hint of vanilla. Complex and concentrated. Deep and elegant structure with well-integrated tannins. Long and fruity aftertaste.

Description: After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. 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.
