Domaine Chanson Marsannay 2015 (91 JS)
“Black cherries but also violets and fresh herbs, making this an expressive wine. Some power from the ripe tannins, which has a lot to offer. If it was more elegant at the finish, would definitely rate this even higher. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling
Marsannay is a village level located in the northen part of the Côte de Nuits a short distance of Dijon, the regional capital. Chanson has made this appellation an intense focus because of the serious quality the wines can achieve when diligently approached, and the sheer pleasure they can offer.
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
